The Tigers also won the Women’s Varsity Lightweight 4+ in 7:32.9, defeating Emory, Miami (OH), the Clemson Club team, Davidson, College of Charleston and UNC-Wilmington.
The closest race of the day was in the Women’s Varsity 8+. Northeastern won the race in 6:40.6, and Clemson took second (6:41.2) and third place (6:52.0). Only .6 of a second separated the two schools at the finish.
“Today was a great day of racing,” said head coach Susie Lueck. “The huge fan support from parents and spectators was tremendous. We rose to the challenge of racing with a national-powerhouse. We dominated the other races and showed that we are a force to be reckoned with.”
The Tigers will compete against Tennessee and Michigan State on the Grand River in Lansing, MI, next Saturday.
