Women's Varsity 8 Named CGASPORTS.COM Athletes of the Week

NEW LONDON, Conn. – The women’s rowing varsity eight team has been named CGASPORTS.COM Athletes of the Week for defending their championship at the Head of the Housatonic.

The lineup was:

C – Victoria Castleberry

8 – Sarah Kukich

6 – Karisa Maurer

5 – Tess Heimerman

4 – Tara Strauss

3 – Hailey Thompson

The crew was charged with defending their bow number, as they were the first crew on the course in their event after finishing first in the event last year.  The Bears charged down the course, rowing strong, clean, and composed.  They continued to draw away from the field over the 2.7 miles, ultimately finishing 36 seconds ahead of the second-place crew.
The women's team is back in action next weekend (October 17-18) when they travel to Boston for the Head of the Charles.
