GW Women's Rowing to Race at Atlantic 10 Championship on Saturday
Colonials in Search of First Conference Championship After Runner-Up Showing in 2012
May 2, 2013
WASHINGTON -The George Washington women's rowing team, fresh off a clean sweep of the George's Cup and 1998 Cup last weekend, travels north to the Cooper River in Pennsauken, N.J., for the 2013 Atlantic 10 Championship on Saturday morning.
At last season's event, the Colonials finished in second-place, clinching the runner-up trophy for the first time since 2003. GW is searching for its first conference title after totaling seven second-place finishes dating back to 1996.
The Colonials have also had success in the individual races. GW won the Varsity 8 in 2006 and 2001, the JV 8 in 2005 and the Varsity 4 in 2003.
Morning heats will commence at 8:00 a.m. with two heats each for the Varsity 8 (8:00, 8:10), JV8 (8:20, 8:30) and Varsity 4 (8:40, 8:50). The top three crews from each heat will advance to the Grand Final, where a points system will be implemented to determine the final standings. The Petite and Grand Finals will launch beginning at 11:00 a.m.
Rhode Island is the reigning champion having narrowly defeated the Colonials last season. Massachusetts leads the conference with 13 A-10 titles while URI has won three times.
