Women's Rowing Set to Race at Eastern Sprints on Sunday

The Mids finished fourth at the 2013 Eastern Sprints.

May 2, 2014

CHERRY HILL, N.J. – The Navy women’s rowing team will begin its postseason schedule with a Sunday date at the Eastern Association of Women’s Rowing Colleges (EAWRC) Sprints. Navy will be one of 10 schools participating in the daylong event.

After beginning its season with victories at the Murphy Cup (three of four events) and Occoquan Sprints (four of four), the Mids moved into head-to-head racing and continued its hot start with 11 wins in 11 races at the George Washington Invitational. Most recently, Navy swept a five-race slate on the Schuykill River versus St. Joseph’s and Rutgers.

“I think that this will be real test of our overall speed and I am really looking forward to see how we do,” said Navy head coach Mike Hughes. “We will be racing against a fast and deep field.”

Last season at the EAWRC Sprints in Cherry Hill, Navy finished fourth in the team standings and saw five boats finish in the top-four of their respective races. The Mids’ V8 crew took a fourth place finish in the grand final with a time of 7:17.242. Columbia won the V8 race at 7:03.168. Navy’s novice eight boat highlighted the team’s performance as it won gold with a first place time of 8:00.8 in the grand final.
