Dartmouth women’s rowing will head to New Jersey for the 2018 Ivy League Women’s Rowing Championship, held on the Cooper River on Sunday, May 13.
Heats will begin at 8 a.m. and Grand and Petite Finals will start at 2 p.m. The MAAC and CAA will also be running their conference championships on Cooper River. Live coverage of the event can be found on the Ivy League Network (ILN).
The Ivy League champion is determined by the fastest boat in the first varsity Grand Final, which will be the last race and will start at 4:30 p.m. The winner earns the conference's automatic bid to the NCAA Championship, giving the team's varsity eight, second varsity and varsity four boats automatic entry as well. The NCAA provides 11 automatic and 11 at-large bids.
At the end of the day, two awards will be given out: one to the Ivy champion and the other to the team with the most points. The league determines the winner of the high point trophy through a points system that weighs each of the day's races.
The Big Green finished in eighth place to conclude the 2017 season. They were second in final two in all four of their races.
The field for the 2018 NCAA Division I Rowing Championship will be announced on May 15.
