Rowing Falls to Duke on Saturday

CLEMSON, S.C. — Clemson battled No. 14 Duke on Lake Hartwell on Saturday morning, but the Blue Devils were too tough to overtake.

On a cool, overcast morning with flat to 1.8 mph winds on Lake Wheeler, the Tigers competed in the 1V8+, 2V8+, 3V8+, 1V4+ and 2V4+ heats, but the Blue Devils took the victory in each heat.

The Tigers kicked off the morning in the 3V8+ race which clocked in at 7:16.2 with the 2V4 and 1V4 boats coming in at 7:44.9 and 7:39.3, respectively. The 2V8 boat saw massive improvement, coxed by Julia Walsh, with a solid time of 6:48.6. To finish the race, senior Kate Hadley coxed the 1V8 crew to a 6:45.3 time.

“I thought this early season race gave us a great opportunity to go out there and put a race plan together when it counted,” said Head Coach Stephen Frazier Wong. “Scrimmages are great, but being able to have another team line up against us, execute and see what we’ll be able to use later this season is great. Duke is a solid team, and we are looking forward to closing some margins. Congratulations to them on winning the Carolina Cup this year.”

Up next, Clemson will travel to Oak Ridge, Tenn. for the Cardinal Invite on March 19-20.
