CAMBRIDGE, MA – The 14th-ranked Clemson women’s rowing team finished first in two of four races against 10th-ranked Yale, Boston University and Dartmouth on the Charles River on Saturday. The Tigers’ 2nd Varsity 8+ and 1st Novice 8+ each get first-place finishes.
“I am very proud of our teams efforts today,” said Clemson Head Coach Robbie Tenenbaum. “Our Second Eight led by a length early and held on for a great victory and our novices continue to improve. We are thrilled with another great performance from both of them as they beat both Yale and Boston University.”
In the 2nd Varsity 8+ race, the Tigers knocked off Yale by a margin of .4 seconds. The Clemson 2V8 finished with a time of 6:54.7 just ahead of Yale with a time of 6:55.1. Dartmouth followed in third while Boston University came in fourth.
