No. 6 rowing team seeks to power past opponents

The No. 6 women’s rowing team will compete in its second regatta of the season this weekend in the Pac-10 Challenge hosted by No. 4 Stanford. The Cavaliers will race against both UCLA and No. 5 California Saturday and Stanford Sunday before returning to the East Coast.

The team heads into the tournament boosted by its solid victory against Bucknell last Saturday. The squad finished ahead of Bucknell in the Varsity Eight, Second Varsity Eight, Varsity Four, Novice Eight and Second Novice Eight divisions. Key rowers returning to the Varsity Eight squad include junior Desiree Burns, senior Augusta Stratos, junior Lauren Hutchins and junior Jennifer Cromwell. The Second Varsity Eight, meanwhile, will look to continue its bid for another successful season after winning the ACC Championship and finishing fourth at the NCAA Tournament last year.
