  • PISCATAWAY, N.J. (May 6, 2014) – The Rutgers rowing team competed in the EAWRC Sprints on Sunday, May 4 in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, on the Cooper River. The Scarlet Knights’ Second Varsity 8 and Varsity 4B registered the best outings, clocking in at 7:10.070 and 8:04.182, respectively, for third-place finishes in their finals.  



    The Varsity 4 finished in fifth place (7:53.09) and the Third Varsity 8 finished in fourth place (7:36.708) in their Grand Finals, while the First Varsity 8 clocked in at 6:57.260 for a fourth-place finish in the Varsity 8 Petite Finals.

    “The Varsity 8 had a subpar performance after racing well the week prior,” said head coach Max Borghard. “The Second Varsity 8 had a better second race than they did in the heats, but after racing so well at home the team is eager to get back to practicing hard and prepping for the American Athletic Conference Rowing Championships.”

    In the heats, the First Varsity 8 finished in fifth of five boats (6:57.482), the Second Varsity 8 finished in fourth of five boats (7:17.277) and the Varsity 4 finished second of four boats (7:49.624).

    Rutgers is set to compete in the American Athletic Conference Championships on Sunday, May 18 in West Windsor, New Jersey.  The Scarlet Knights will battle UCF, UConn, Louisville, SMU, Temple and Villanova for the conference crown.
