CLEMSON, S.C. - The Duke rowing team topped ACC foe Clemson in two races during the opening regatta of the spring season, besting the Tigers in the varsity eight and second varsity four on Lake Hartwell Saturday. Duke also defeated Eastern Michigan in all five races.

Duke's varsity eight crew of coxswain Caroline Kiritsy, Emily Theys, Claire Vannelli, Grace Cassidy, Laura Sciarrino, Tara Dalton, Hannah Hewitt, Alex Stonehill and Katie Dukovich pulled in with a time of 6:44.5, which was just under two seconds faster than the Clemson eight. Duke's top crew included three freshmen - Hewitt, Stonehill and Dukovich - as well as the senior duo of Theys and Sciarrino. Duke's varsity eight has now won two consecutive races dating back to the Head of the Hooch in November.

In the second varsity four, coxswain Sarah Baker guided the crew of Emily Hyland, Patricia Kolman, Jeanette Llorens and Kathleen Lyons to a top finish, gliding past the Tigers with a time of 7:58.2. That finish was nearly 20 seconds faster than the Clemson boat, which clocked in at 8:16.4.

Duke also notched second place finishes in the second varsity 8 (7:00.7) and the first varsity four (7:46.2) as well as a third and fourth-place showing in the novice eight (7:26.0, 8:09.6).

Next up for Duke is the Cardinal Invitational, hosted by Louisville, on March 16-17 in Oak Ridge, Tenn.
