GW Crew turned a lot of heads at Princeton Chase 2015, with its boat speed and its memorable tribute to their teammate Nick Upton.
Leading with their hearts with their tribute, our men’s freshman 8+ finished an impressive 4th place behind California, Princeton and Cornell while besting Dartmouth, Harvard Lightweights, Princeton Lightweights, Syracuse, Navy…and Georgetown.
GW Men’s Rowing once again found itself in familiar territory, with close competition against Syracuse as Syracuse Orange edged our V8 by less than 2 seconds over the three mile course. Silver linings were had, however, as GW’s A and B boats both bested Georgetown’s A boat – with our B boat coming in one place and four seconds ahead of the Hoyas.
Our men also had two boats in the 4+ event, with the “A” four trailing the winners by 1% and finishing with an admirable 4th place overall.
GW Women’s Rowing faced a deep field of 65 boats in the varsity eight event, with our A and B boat entries both finishing in the middle of the pack.
Also rowing a boat in the 4+ event, GW Women offered a shining spot with a greater than 15 second lead over the Georgetown women’s four.
