Occoquan Sprints Ahead For Women's Rowing

Navy's first and second varsity crews were both victorious last weekend.

April 5, 2013

ANNAPOLIS, Md. - The Navy women's rowing team will look to continue its great start to the 2013 spring campaign when it takes part in the Occoquan Sprints on Sunday in Fairfax, Va. Navy opened its schedule last weekend with the varsity and second varsity eight boats both winning their finals races at the Murphy Cup.

"We had a great weekend," said Navy head coach Mike Hughes. "We have some pretty good crews to go against this weekend and we look forward to it. We really enjoy this kind of racing where we have multiple races in a day."

Navy will compete in the varsity, second varsity and novice eight races and have several varsity four boats also in action. There will be three varsity eight heats with all crews moving on to either a first, second or third-level final. There will be no heat races for the novice or varsity four crews, just three finals races in both categories. The second varsity eight will have only a finals race. There will be two novice eight heats and two finals races.

Complete Race Schedule

Racing will get underway at 10 a.m. and is scheduled to end after 2:30 p.m. with the final race of the day, the women's varsity eight first level final.

The Mids are trying to repeat what they did in 2012 by having the first and second varsity eight crews with both the Murphy Cup and Occoquan Sprints to begin the season. Last weekend at the Murphy Cup, the varsity eight took the top spot in the final by beating out Drexel by five seconds, while the second varsity eight held off Buffalo by four seconds for first place in the final.
