Crew Opens Season with Pair of Victories

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - The women's crew team kicked off its fall season in fashion today, winning both events in which they participated. The Bulldogs took first, second, third and fifth place in the Collegiate Division I Women's Eights. They also took first and fourth place in the Collegiate Division I Women's Fours.

During a windy day that made conditions tough for all crews, the Elis picked up where they left off last season, sweeping the top three spots in the Varsity Eights race. Head coach William Porter was generally satisfied with the way the team performed.

"Overall, I think it was a good start," he said. "It gave us an opportunity to see what we need to work on. As a team, it was a good first effort, we worked hard and did a lot of things correctly."

Full race results can be found here.

The Bulldogs will continue their season next weekend with the Head of the Charles.
