April 14, 2012

ANNAPOLIS, Md. - The Navy women's rowing team defeated Georgetown in all three races between the teams on Saturday morning in Annapolis on the Severn River. The varsity eight improved to 18-3 on the year.

"There was great competition today and the water was perfect, which doesn't always happen here," said Navy head coach Mike Hughes. "We are most happy with our sprinting coming along - we had a great last 200-300 meters and that was good to see."

Navy's first varsity boat got out front early, but used its strong finish to hold off the Hoyas, 6:59.26-7:02.02.

The Mids' second varsity crew also used a solid final quarter of the race to defeat Georgetown. Navy's second varsity won with a time of 7:18.1, while Georgetown finished with a time of 7:23.8.

Navy closed the morning with a win in the four's race. Navy's four crew clocked an 8:20.98, defeating both Georgetown boats that finished with times of 8:26.38 and 8:40.63, respectively.

The Midshipmen will travel to Philadelphia, Pa., next weekend to take on St. Joseph's and Boston University. It will be the final race for the Mids prior to the Patriot League Championships on April 29.
