Clemson’s First Varsity Eight Named ACC Crew of the Week

April 9, 2007

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Clemson’s first varsity eight has been tabbed this week’s Atlantic Coast Conference Crew of the Week after recording three wins at the George Washington Invitational in Washington, D.C., last Saturday.

The Tigers’ first varsity eight crew consisted of Abbey Fernandez (coxswain), Lizzy Jennings, Suzanne Van Fleet, Brittany Cummings, Lindsey Sheppard, Jessica Leidecker and Kristen Weinacker.

Last Friday, Clemson’s first varsity 8+ defeated Delaware after crossing the finish line in 6:17.9. The Tigers then followed up the next day with two more wins, as they defeated Iowa with a winning time of 6:23.5 and edged past a tough Navy crew with a 6:19.8 mark.

Up next for Clemson will be the 2007 ACC Rowing Championship. The Tigers will host the league championship for the third year in a row on Saturday, April 21, at Lake Hartwell, S.C.
