The University of Tennessee women's rowing team followed its gold-medal performance in the club 8+ race with a strong outing in the championship 8+ event, capturing 25th-place in the 47-tream field at the Head of the Charles regatta on Sunday.
UT's championship 8+ boat comprised of Erin Artz (cox), Nicole Bold, Lauren Wells, Kacey Montgomery, Kaitlin Bargreen, Kay Logan, Kelly Kraiss, Sally BeVille and Amy McIntosh finished the three-mile race in 17:44.78. The U.S. Rowing national team won the event with a time of 16:12.90, while Yale University finished third in 16:34.46 to claim the distinction of being the highest-placing college team.
The Lady Vols improved nine spots from their starting position of 34th with the 25th-place showing. Because the championships 8+ starting order at the Head of the Charles is determined by the previous year's results, Tennessee will be able to begin the race at a higher position next year.
The Lady Vols wrap up their fall schedule at the Head of the Chattahoochee on Saturday, Nov. 2, on Lake Lanier in Gainesville, Ga., which will serve as the host site for the NCAA Championships, May 30-June 2, 2003.
