Clemson 3V8 Named ACC Crew of the Week

CLEMSON, S.C. – The Clemson 3V8 was named the Atlantic Coast Conference Crew of the Week and named by the conference on Tuesday. The crew defeated ninth-ranked Michigan and Navy at the ACC-Big Ten Challenge last Saturday on Lake Monticello, Va.

In a tight battle, the Tigers were able to capture the victory by less than a second. Clemson finished with a time of 6:59.8, narrowly edging out Michigan, who finished at 7:00.7. Navy finished third 7:25.3.

The honor is the first of the year for the Tigers. The Clemson 1V8 earned ACC Crew of the Week for the week of March 16-22, 2014 after defeating Buffalo, Duke, Iowa, Kansas and Purdue on Lake Hartwell.

The crew composed of Maggie Nelson (cox.) Brynn Hentschel, Alison Rehfus, Rebecca Simonetti, Amber Rewis, Megan Mars, Anna McLean, Katherine Peters and Maddie Macrone.

The Tigers next regatta is April 18-19 when Clemson hosts the Clemson Invitational on Lake Hartwell. 21 total schools will be in action.
