Women's Rowing to Compete at Occoquan Sprints on Sunday

Navy women's crew will look to defend its Occoquan Sprints crown on Sunday.

April 5, 2014

The Navy women’s rowing team will continue its early season action on Sunday in Fairfax Station, Va. with the Occoquan Sprints. The all-day event, which will consist of heat races in the morning and final action in the afternoon, will take place at Sandy Run Park. Heat action will begin at 10 a.m. with the Mids’ Novice 8+ boat getting on the Occoquan.

“This is another early-season race that it will give us a chance to further evaluate our speed,” said Navy head coach Mike Hughes. “Also it's good because we have a heat and final which gives us more racing experience.”

The Mids are the two-time defending champions at the Occoquan Sprints in both the varsity eight and second varsity eights.

At the 2013 Occoquan Sprints, the V8 and 2V8 boats claimed titles. The Mids in the V8 boat won their heat race with a time of 5:41 before coming back in the afternoon and posting a winning time of 5:49.9, nearly five seconds in front Bucknell’s ‘A’ boat. In 2V8 action, Navy won its heat race with a 5:57.8 result before holding off Drexel in the finals by three seconds with a 5:48.4 time.

Last week at the Murphy Cup, Navy participated in four events and came away with three wins and a third place finish in the fourth. The Mids’ V8 boat earned the victory with a dominant performance by over 10 seconds, while their three V4 boats went first, second and third. The Novice 8 crew rounded out the victors last Saturday as they won with a 8:34.33 result.
