WASHINGTON – The Georgetown women’s rowing team competed against George Washington and George Mason this past weekend on the Potomac River, racing for both the Georges Trophy and the Class of 1998 Cup. The Hoyas won the point totals over GW and George Mason (20 - 17.5 - 7.5) to claim the Georges Trophy and defeated GW (18 – 14.5) to win the Class of 1998 Cup.
"It was another great day for Georgetown across the board,” Georgetown Head Coach Miranda Paris said. “It's been a very successful regular season for us. Consistent performances on race day is a result of consistent effort and intensity at practice. I'm very proud of our whole team for creating day-by-day what we need to perform when it matters."
"Our rivalry with George Washington is a privilege. It's awesome to have a great program right next door and they always bring a very high level of competitiveness each time we race."
