May 13, 2011
CAMDEN, NJ- The George Washington women's rowing team will race at the Eastern Association of Women's Rowing Colleges (EAWRC) Eastern Sprints on the Cooper River on Sunday.
"The Eastern Sprints is the most competitive mega conference in the United States riddled with tradition and excellence. I look forward to lining my young crews up against the very best this weekend," said head coach Eric Carcich.
The Colonials will open on Sunday morning at 9:00 in the third morning heat of the Varsity 8 against M.I.T., Northeastern, Yale, Georgetown and Radcliffe. The top two finishes in this heat will advance to the Grand Final later in the afternoon.
GW's Second Varsity 8, silver medalists at the ECAC Championships on May 1, will race in the first heat at 9:10 against Penn, Princeton, Dartmouth and Rutgers with the top two crews advancing to the finals.
The Colonials will continue morning racing in the third heat of the Varsity 4 at 10:05 against Navy, Penn, Yale, Rutgers and Boston. The Varsity 4B will follow at 10:15 against Columbia, Brown, Penn and Boston College.
"All of our crews have a chance once again to make a great step this weekend against the top crews on the East Coast" said Carcich. "The Eastern Sprints has a strange way of bringing out the very best race-day performances with all crews involved."
