Conditions were close to perfect with flat water on the Severn River as Georgetown met Navy for the second weekend in a row. The Hoya Varsity 8 raced the Midshipmen the weekend prior at the GW Invite, finishing almost eight seconds behind. This week, the crew closed the gap to two seconds as the crews traded leads through the race. “I’m pleased with the progress we’ve made this week. We set some specific goals and accomplished them,” commented Head Coach Miranda Paris. “Thanks to the competitive pressure throughout the team, everyone is keeping each other honest and focused.”
The Second Varsity 8 race was equally impressive as the Hoyas battled the Mids. Senior five seat Angela Nelson felt that it was solid race: “We were ready for a dogfight. When Navy started to walk away from us through the 1000, we made a move and walked back up to almost even. I was proud of our resilience as a crew.”
The Varsity 4’s races were just over a second off of their last margin against Navy. The Hoya Varsity 4 raced with a fierceness that had not been displayed yet this year. Assistant Coach Steve Full was pleased with his boats’ performances. “We raced with some true grit and passion today, which is what we’ve been working at all year. I am really proud of the race they put together today. We talked all week about where we can push it to as a boat and as team. We definitely took a big step today.”
The Hoyas have this weekend off and will pick it up against Louisville on April 29 in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. Follow the Hoyas on Twitter @HoyaRowing.
