PRINCETON, N.J. – Dartmouth women’s rowing competed at the Princeton Chase on Sunday, entering nine boats in the event.
“Building off last weekend at the Charles, the team showed another solid performance today at the Chase,” head coach Linda Muri said. “Two highlights in particular stood out - better placement across the board and boats which stayed strong over the full distance of the race. It's a testament to the training these women are putting in as a team. We are gaining traction every week and look forward to our final race in two weeks at the Foot of the Charles.”
The Big Green had four of their crews compete in the first race of the day, the Varsity 8+. Dartmouth’s A boat – stroked by Sabrina Bohrer and coxed by Katie Erdos – finished highest, taking 12th out of the 60 boats in the field (15:11.08) and completing the three-mile course just three-tenths of a second ahead of Central Florida (15:11.38).
Finishing next was the Green’s C crew in 39th (15:58.84), coming in less than half a second ahead of Cornell B (15:59.43), while Dartmouth’s B boat was 45th (16:12.91). The D boat followed in 57th (16:51.54), leaving over four seconds between it and Georgetown B (16:55.70).
In the Varsity 4+, Dartmouth A was eighth (17:22.76). Stroked by Bohrer and Jasmine Williams, the Green finished less than two-tenths of a second ahead of Central Florida (17:22.95). The B boat followed soon after in 12th place (17:38.96), leaving almost eight full seconds between it and Stanford. Dartmouth C was 23rd (18:46.12) and the Big Green’s D boat came in 27th (19:33.22).
The Big Green’s Novice 8+ performed well, finishing in fourth place (16:36.94). The boat was stroked by Sam Hawley and coxed by Katie Erdos and left a four-second gap between it and Georgetown.
Next Sunday, Dartmouth will host the freshman-only Green Monster
