Clemson Concludes Head of the Charles

Boston, MA. – Clemson wrapped up their two days of competition at Head of the Charles this Sunday. The Tiger’s raced in the Women’s Club Four on Saturday and the Women’s Championship Eight Sunday. 

The Clemson Tiger’s trip started off Saturday afternoon with the Women’s Club Fours. The line-up for the race was as follows: Jaysen Hall at stroke, Emma Randolph, Claudia Scherbin, Caroline Emerson at bow, and Salma Shaalan as coxswain. While the boat originally placed fourth, they were later disqualified from the race by the officials. 

Next, Clemson raced in the Women’s Championship Eights on Sunday. The line-up for this race was as follows: Christina Minyo at coxswain, Anna Luttrell at stroke, Lori Belanger, Isabel Velasquez, Rachel Twitty, Amelia Rinehart, Amelia Anglin, Emerey Sampson, and Hannah Hayes at bow. The Tigers would place 24th. 

“It was great to take the Tigers back to Boston and the Head of the Charles after a few years away from this race” said Head Coach Stephen Wong. “The heightened atmosphere of this classic Fall competition is one that is essential for us to put ourselves into early and often. I know these Tigers will take the lessons learned here back to the rest of the team and take our training to a new level.” 

The Tigers will be back on the road Saturday, October 29th, as they travel to Tuscaloosa, Alabama to compete in the Head of the Black Warrior River, a Power of Pink event focused on raising money and awareness for Breast Cancer.
