ITHACA, N.Y. – The University of Virginia women’s rowing team won four of six races against Cornell on Sunday (April 22). The competition was held on Cayuga Inlet.
Virginia won the first varsity eight race with a time of 6:40.3 and Cornell finished at 6:49.4. In the second varsity eight competition, UVa had a time of 6:51.0 followed by Cornell at 6:51.8.
Virginia won the varsity four race with a time of 7:50.5 followed by UVa “B” (7:59.4) and Cornell (8:04.1). In the second varsity four competition, UVa had a time of 7:37.2 and Cornell finished with a time of 7:40.6.

“This was a tough trip, but our crews responded well today after a tough day in Boston on Saturday,” UVa head coach Kevin Sauer said. “I thought our varsity eight had an especially fine performance against Cornell. Over the first 1500 meters of the race we rowed as hard and as well as we have in a long time. Overall it was an excellent race.”
In Boston on Saturday, Brown won all six races in competition with Virginia and Boston University. UVa and Boston University each finished second in three of the races.
Virginia competes in the Atlantic Coast Conference Championships on Satuday (April 28) in Clemson, S.C. The Cavaliers won all four events last year in winning the first ACC Women’s Rowing Championship.
