"I'm happy for our athletes," Will Porter, The Friends of YWC Head Coach of the Bulldogs, said on Sunday morning. "They earned it. Our goal was to win the event fair and square, and it looks like we did."
The Bulldogs posted a time of 17:10.341.
"Our club eight is a developmental crew comprised of athletes from our third and fourth eights," Porter said on Saturday. "They did well and learned a bit about collegiate racing."
