CLEMSON, S.C. – The No. 18 Duke rowing team turned in a third-place finish at the ACC Championship Sunday on Lake Hartwell on the campus of Clemson. In a highly competitive battle throughout the day, the Blue Devils secured 72 points as they qualified all five boats to the Grand Final for the first time in program history.

In Grand Final competition, the Blue Devils captured three medals with one second-place finish in the V4, two third-place finishes in the 3V8 and 2V4 and two fourth-place finishes in the V8 and 2V8. This morning in preliminary race action, the Blue Devils claimed the top spot in the V4 and 2V4, second in the V8 and 3V8 and third in the 2V8.

Individually, senior Katherine Maitland garnered First Team All-ACC accolades, her second-consecutive honor. Junior Isabel Ruby-Hill was a Second Team All-ACC selection, earning all-league honors for the first time. Maitland and Ruby-Hill were both members of Duke’s V8 on Sunday.

Duke bested No. 17 Notre Dame in the final team standings as No. 7 Virginia garnered its 18th ACC title with 99 overall points. Syracuse was second with 77 points followed by Duke (72), Notre Dame (69), Louisville (66), Clemson (41), North Carolina (29), and Miami and Boston College (22).

“I am beyond proud of our team’s effort today,” head coach Megan Cooke Carcagno said. “Our team depth was solid and our top end racing was very close. I’m really thrilled we were able to have five boats in the finals for the first time in school history. I’m also encouraged that we had three team medals, predominately with our younger boat classes. Our top two varsity eights raced their hearts out and closed a big gap on Virginia. As a team, it feels good to be top three, but I know we were a little sad to not clinch a top-two spot where we needed it. Our fate will now be in the selectors hands for an NCAA bid.”

Duke’s V4, composed of only freshmen, claimed second in a loaded Grand Final, crossing the line in 7:12.8. Virginia won the event in 7:06.9 as the Blue Devils edged out Notre Dame (7:15.8).

The V4 landed in the Grand Final after posting a first-place finish in the morning session’s second heat with a time of 7:18.0.

In the 2V4 Grand Final, Duke locked in a third-place performance. The Blue Devils clocked in at 7:20.8, trailing only Virginia (7:13.4) and Notre Dame (7:16.4). The 2V4 earned its Grand Final appearance with a first-place time of 7:24.5.

The Blue Devils added another third-place Grand Final finish with the 3V8, trailing Virginia (6:32.1) and Syracuse (6:41.3) for first and second. The 3V8 notched second in the morning preliminary races in heat one with a time of 6:49.3.

Duke’s V8 checked in fourth in the Grand Final with a time of 6:26.4, behind Virginia (6:19.4), Syracuse (6:23.3) and Louisville (6:25.3). In the morning session of heat one, the V8 posted a second-place finish in 6:34.1, trailing only Virginia (6:24.5).

The Blue Devils’ 2V8 opened afternoon racing in the Grand Final with a fourth-place finish in 6:37.9. The morning race resulted in a third-place finish (6:44.1) in heat one to secure a spot in the Grand Final.

The Blue Devils now await the NCAA Selection Show, which takes place Tuesday at 5 p.m., to learn whether they will receive an at-large bid.
