Women's Rowing

WORCESTER -- The WPI women's rowing saw the varsity eight win the Quinsigamond Snake Regatta for the fourth consecutive year as the Engineers hosted Saturday on Lake Quinsigamond. 

The varsity eight reached the finish line in 16:29.2, 2.7 seconds ahead of Williams (16:31.9)  It marked the first time the Engineers have defeated the Ephs in the fall season, even last season (Williams defeated WPI by 10 seconds at the Head of the Charles), when the Crimson and Gray ended up second at the NCAA Championships in the spring.   The second varsity eight placed eighth (17:19.3) while the third varsity eight finished 16th (18:48.5). 

The first novice eight earned a bronze medal, placing third in its race in a time of 19:39.3.  The second novice eight was eighth, reaching the finish line in 22:14.4.

The Engineers continue the fall portion of the schedule at 3:05pm Sunday at the historic Head of The Charles Regatta.
