March 27, 2008

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Clemson’s Second Varsity Eight Crew was named the Atlantic Coast Conference Women’s Rowing Crew of the Week Wednesday after defeating Cornell in a dual meet held last Saturday on Lake Hartwell in Clemson. The crew also boasts an undefeated record so far this season. The Clemson Second Varsity Eight is composed of Abbey Fernandez (coxswain, Tampa, Fla.), Hilary Cumbest (Nashville, Tenn.), Brittany Cummings (Virginia Beach, Va.), Nicole Rau (Wyoming, Mich.), Mairi Trimboli (Ludlow, Vt.), Caitlin O’Neill (Newburgh, N.Y.), Kelly Murphy (Marietta, Ga.), and Alison Colberg (Six Mile S.C.).

The Tigers defeated Cornell’s Second Varsity Eight in a time of 6:51.8, as the Big Red recorded a time of 6:57.64.

The honor marked the second straight for Clemson in rowing, which garnered the first ACC Rowing Crew of the Week last week for its Varsity Eight+ performance against Boston College, Purdue, Penn, Ithaca and Indiana.
