DURHAM, N.C. -The Duke rowing team's varsity eight crew was named the Ronald McDonald House Charities Duke Student-Athletes of the Week after winning the Sea World Cal Cup in the Grand Final of the San Diego Crew Classic last weekend on Mission Bay.

The crew of coxswain Caroline Kiritsy, Kathy Smithwick, Katie Burke, Emily Theys, Rory Erickson-Kulas, Tara Dalton, Laura Sciarrino, Grace Cassidy and Claire Vannelli opened the weekend on Saturday with a 6:48.95, first-place showing in the women's collegiate to advance to the Grand Final.

On Sunday, the Blue Devils came up huge in the come-from-behind victory in the Grand Final, posting a time of 7:08.47 to beat second-place Oregon State in the last 300m by two seconds.

The nationally-acclaimed regatta consisted of close to 100 races with more than 3,400 athletes.
