GT Crew Wins by a Landslide at the Chattanooga

Despite the lack of practice time on the water due to flooding and contamination in the Chattahoochee, Georgia Tech Crew had a great showing at their season opener, the Chattanooga Head Race, on Saturday, October 10, marked by strong showings by all four squads.

On the men’s side, the Varsity Men took first and third place in the Men’s Collegiate 8+, and also fielded six other boats that earned medals in other events. The Novice Men took home silver in the Men’s Novice 8+ along with silver and bronze in the Men’s True Novice 4+ race.

The women had a strong showing as well. The Varsity Women stacked up well considering the tough competition with varsity programs. They took gold in the Women’s Lightweight 4+ and also finished ahead of all of the other club teams (as well as some varsity boats) in the Women’s Collegiate 8+ and Women’s Collegiate 4+ races. The Novice Women brought home gold in the Women’s True Novice 4+ and bronze in the Women’s Novice 8+.

Overall the team did very well, finishing 1st among twelve colleges for team points. Georgia Tech gained 653 points, more than 300 points above second place Clemson University Rowing Association, clinching the College Team Point Trophy by a landslide victory.
