Women's rowing excels in home race

By Thomas Walter

Writer

The women’s rowing team had their only home competition on the familiar waters of the Susquehanna River this past weekend. The Orange and Blue won seven of nine races, racing Delaware on Friday, while competing against Colgate, Old Dominion and more Delaware boats on Saturday.

The Bison took all four races against Delaware on Friday evening. The varsity eight, varsity lightweight eight, varsity four and second varsity lightweight eight were victorious against the Blue Hens.

On Saturday, the Bison did not have the same extraordinary success they had the previous day. The varsity eight lost in a competitive race to Old Dominion. The varsity lightweight eight beat Delaware by five seconds, while the third varsity eight finished 40 seconds behind them. The second varsity eight also bested Old Dominion by 30 seconds later that afternoon.

The varsity four looked to continue their success from the previous day, but Old Dominion was too much for the Bison to handle, and they finished behind ODU. The second varsity lightweight eight once again beat Delaware and also Colgate.

“This weekend felt a lot better than the previous ones,” Madeleine Armstrong ’14 said. “We’ve been making really good changes and progress in the past few days. We are trying push that even further in the coming weeks.”

The Bison will race in the Patriot League Championships this coming weekend in Worcester, Mass. on Lake Quinsigamond.
