The Blue Devils, who are coming off a 20th-place finish at the Head of the Charles, will enter two boats in the varsity eight, four in the varsity four, two in the novice eight and three in the novice four.
Duke's top boat stays intact from its last race at the Head of the Charles, with the exception of sophomore Kathryn Lowry, who will now sit in with the top varsity eight. Joining her are coxswain Justine Hong, Kathy Smithwick, Laurel Sisler, Rory Erickson-Kulas, Alex Japhet, Caroline Fox, Emily Theys and Stephanie Rosser. That octet notched a time of 17:52.605 at the Head of the Charles on November 19, taking 20th place ahead of MIT, Massachusetts, Boston College and Boston University, among others.
Duke will also enter another boat in the varsity eight, made up of freshmen Sarah Baker (coxswain), Katie Burke, Laura Kuhlman and Julijana Englander sophomores Laura Guth, Laura Williams, Ali Long, Meredith Jewitt and Nancy McKinstry.
Also taking part in the two-day event for Duke will be four entries in the varsity four, including the top boat of Baker, Smithwick, Sisler, Japhet and Erickson-Kulas, who will all be pulling double-duty. Hong, Briede, Fox, Guth and Rosser will make up Duke's second entry.
Several novice members of the team will also compete in the novice eight and novice four. The complete lineups are listed below.
