Georgetown University Women's Rowing Concludes Fall Season
Nov. 24, 2008
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Despite the cold conditions the Georgetown University rowing team concluded its fall season on Saturday participating in a series of intersquad races, including a three-mile head race and a 1000 meter sprint race. Regatta organizers cut the day short after two races due to unseasonable cold weather and windy conditions.
"Despite the cold conditions, today's racing was a great opportunity for all the squads to come together for some friendly competition," assistant coach Elizabeth Dennison said. "It was a great way to end the fall season and hopefully the start of a new tradition that will continue in years to come."
The overall winner of Saturday's events was the crew of Coxswain Katherine Relle, stroke Rebecca Kisner, Lili Meyer, Hannah Kittel, Erin Carter, Joan McDonald, Sydney LaGuyader, Anna Dubinski, and Bow Alex Kloppenburg.
"It was very exciting to be able to field 5 boats of very competitive Georgetown athletes," women's novice lightweight coach Lauren Smeeding said. "As soon as they pushed off of the dock, the rowers were ready and wanting to win. These athletes will take that same competitive spirit with them into winter training and we look forward to 5 even faster boats this spring."
