PRINCETON, N.J. -- Navy's women's crew team closed its fall varsity
season by placing 17th at the Princeton Chase, Sunday afternoon on Lake
Carnegie in Princeton, N.J.
Navy's top boat completed the three-mile course in a time of 17:28 to
place 17th in the field of 46. Navy's other entries placed 40th and
"I am not disappointed in how we ended up, but it could have been
better," said Navy women's head coach Mike Hughes. "We finished ahead
of all the teams we have already beaten this fall, so we didn't lose any
ground to anyone."
Navy concluded a successful fall season that included winning the Navy
Day Regatta, placing second at the Head of the Schuylkill Regatta and in
the top half at the Head of the Charles Regatta.
"I feel we had an excellent fall of rowing," said Hughes. "With the
speed we were able to generate this fall, I am excited about the
possibilities for us in the spring."
