Oct. 1, 2013

WASHINIGTON – Once again, the Georgetown women’s rowing team opened up its season with a strong showing in front of home spectators at the 33rd Annual Head of the Potomac on Sunday. The Hoyas’ took home first and third places showings in the Women’s Open Eight, as the Varsity Eight finished ahead of George Washington with a time of 16:01.7. The GU Second Varsity Eight finished not long after in 16:50.0.

The Hoyas’ Lightweight Four collected an impressive second place finish with its 18:48.5 time in the Women’s Four-with, finishing just behind the Potomac Boat Club.

“All crews had great races, executing the goals we had set in place,” Head Coach Miranda Paris said. “Wins this early in the season are a testament to the hard work the team puts in over the summer to continue to progress this team forward. The best thing about our team right now is we have integrity throughout: everyone is committed to the goals and the work that needs to be done to get us there. For us, this is just the starting point. I'm so excited to see how this team will progress this year.”
