Coach Summary 2009 Virginia Collegiate Rowing Championships

Posted on Posted in Coach's Summary
The day started out very strongly for William and Mary Rowing, as the Novice Women went undefeated, winning the 8+ race over the University of Richmond, and going 1-2 in the 4+ race against both Virginia Tech and Richmond. Congratulations ladies!
Not to be outdone, the Novice Men also had a good day, rowing solidly against a tough and much more experienced University of Virginia 8+, and then turning around and dominating both Richmond and V-Tech in the 4+ race later in the day.
In the varsity races, the day began extremely well for W&M, as the Varsity Women soundly trounced two V-Tech boats in the 4+ and the Varsity Men won the 4+ race by beating boats from V-Tech, Richmond and Virginia. Later in the day, the varsity returned to the water to race in the day’s signature event, the Varsity 8+.  Though both squads performed well, they were edged out in the end by less than three seconds by their counterparts from V-Tech.  Congratulations to all athletes for a great day of racing, and for bringing home the inaugural VCRC Team Points Trophy, as well as the VT/WM Waterfield Trophy!
