<blank>



Oct. 22, 2011

The Head of the Charles Regatta provides an adequate test for any collegiate rowing team. During Saturday's competition, the Lady Vols passed with flying colors.

UT won the club eight category with a time of 17 minutes 41.48 seconds. The shell coxed by freshman Jessie Richardson and including Maddie Bishop, Mary-Hannah Daugherty, Ashley Case. Liz Dickson, Jessica Burns, Rachel White, Evelyn Radford and Taylor Athan, took the gold medal over stiff competition, including teams from Yale, UConn and Conference USA rival Alabama. The Lady Vols reclaimed the HOCR Club 8 title. UT set the course record of 16 minutes 49.911 seconds in the event in 2005. The Lady Vols have now won six Club 8 titles since 2001.

To add to a strong day of racing for the Big Orange, a group of former Lady Vols took fourth in the alumni eight race. The shell coxed by Katie Ross (2010) and including Laura Miller (2010), Chelsea Pemberton (2005), Rachel Mayberry Knotts (2007), Dana Forbes (2005), Andrea Bagwell (2005), Sarah Hutcheson Arms (2007), Melissa DiCerbo (2005) and Lauren Wells (2006) raced to a time of 18 minutes 23.75 seconds.
