GW Women's Rowing Gets Three Top-Three Finishes at Eastern Sprints
Colonials' Varsity 8 Takes Second in Petite Final
May 14, 2012
PENNSAUKEN, N.J. - The George Washington women's rowing team concluded its impressive season by recording three top-three finishes at the Eastern Sprints on the Cooper River on Sunday afternoon.
The Colonials had four boats - a Varsity 8, JV 8, Varsity 4 and 3V8 - battle a consistent and strong cross-tail wind to advance to the Petite Finals following morning heats.
In the Varsity 8 Petite Final, the Colonials were edged by four seconds by Atlantic 10 rival Rhode Island to take second place. GW finished the course in 6:38.093, shaving five seconds off its time from the morning heat.
The Colonials' Varsity 4 also improved on its morning heat time, clocking in three seconds faster (7:50.059) in the Petite Final to take third place behind M.I.T. (7:48.059) and Northeastern (7:45.844).
GW's JV 8 and 3rd Varsity 8 also advanced to the Petite Finals. The 3V8 finished in second place in its final while the JV crew placed fourth. Both boats improved on their morning heat times.
The GW women's rowing team concludes one of its most successful seasons in recent memory. The Colonials regained various hardware in many rivalries including George's Trophy, the Class of 1998 Cup, the Howard W. Wilkins Bowl at the GW Invitational and a second-place finish at last week's Atlantic 10 Championships.
