Head Coach Lisa Glenn's Lady Vol rowing team opened the spring season with a strong showing against Notre Dame and Michigan State on Fort Loudoun Lake on Saturday. Tennessee was victorious in three races and notched second-place finishes in seven others.

Highlighting the Big Orange's performance was the Varsity 8+ shell - ranked 13th in the USRowing/Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association Varsity 8+ Preseason Poll - as it claimed victories in each of its three races, defeating Michigan State's eighth-ranked squad each time. Tennessee's top boat was powered by Nicole Bold, Lauren Wells, Chelsea Pemberton, Kaitlin Bargreen, McKenzie Craig, Dana Forbes, Sarah Hutcheson and Andrea Bagwell, while Erin Artz coxed the first race and Lizzie Brown guided the crew for the second and third competitions.

Also posting an impressive effort was the Second Varsity 8+ shell, which claimed second place in each of its events. Coxed by Brown in the first race and Artz in the following two, the boat was comprised of Marissa Allen, Beth Schwartz, Rachel Mayberry, Kristen Galloway, Melissa DiCerbo, Heather Hill, Amy McIntosh and Amy McCormick.

 

 

"We learned a lot today," Coach Glenn said. "Obviously, the Varsity 8+ did a nice job managing their pieces, and I was pleased with that. The coxswains in both the Varsity 8+ and Second Varsity 8+ performed well. Across the board, the experience the athletes gained today will make the work we will do in the future more relevant. We're looking forward to next week."

The Lady Vol Varsity 4+ boat, comprised of Caitlyn Cleary, Kathryn Payne, Kelly Hoskins and Lindsay Jones, crossed the finish line third in each of its races. Jovanna Vick guided the shell in the first two competitions, while Ashley Butturini served as the coxswain in the subsequent race.

In Second Varsity 4+ action, Tennessee earned a runner-up finish in its first event - defeating Notre Dame - and came in third in the following two contests. Aboard the shell were Diane Samu, Ashley Anders, Holly Holmes and Jaclyn Adams, while Butturini coxed the first two races and Vick handled the final competition.

The Orange and White Novice 8+ crew finished third in all three of its races, and the Second Novice 8+ shell crossed the line behind Michigan State in each of its dual competitions with the Spartans.

UT will be in action again next week when it hosts Minnesota on Saturday.
