One apparent benchmark for next season will be how we fare against Syracuse University who had a boat in each of our final races.

A GW Men’s straight four won a Silver Medal at the 2000 IRA (Intercollegiate Rowing Association) Championships.
Despite a rough start as the crew adapted to a borrowed boat, the crew of Justin Hutchinson, Jason Anklowitz, Sal Assenza and Jeremy Dutra pulled ahead of University of Washington, Harvard University and Cornell University to pull within two seconds of the winning Wisconsin crew.
Coach Gene Kininmonth brought the crew which, making it to the Grand Final placed GW ahead of (listed in finish order) Cornell, Harvard, Washington, Rutgers, Brown, Princeton, Yale, MIT, Cornell (B), Boston University, Michigan, Syracuse, Navy, Georgetown, Penn, and Georgetown (B).
