MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - The West Virginia University rowing team concluded its fall schedule today at the Rivanna Romp in Earlysville, Va.
"Today's performances were surprisingly poor and it's frustrating to not see the results of our progress on land equated on the water,” says coach Jimmy King. “Despite our struggles on the water this fall, we know this group can and should be more competitive in the spring. We have a really good group this year and there's no doubt that they'll keep working diligently toward the spring season when the results matter most.”
The Mountaineers had two varsity eight boats in the event. Boat B finished the varsity 8+ race in 13th place overall with a time of 14:52.7. Crew A was right behind, finishing in 14th place overall in 14:53.2.
In the varsity 8+, Virginia’s A boat crossed the finish line in first place overall with a time of 13:17.1
In the novice 4+, West Virginia’s Boat A came in 17th place overall (16:14.2), and Boat D was the next Mountaineer crew to finish, coming in 26th (17:09.3).
Boat B and C crossed the line in 27th and 28th place, respectively.
