CAMDEN, N.J. - Duke will advance three boats to the grand finals of the Knecht Cup on Sunday after working through their heats and semifinals on Saturday.  

The morning started off strong for the team with convincing wins in the varsity eight and the 2V8. Duke's top boat of Caroline Kiritsy, Kathy Smithwick, Katie Burke, Emily Theys, Rory Erickson-Kulas, Tara Dalton, Laura Sciarrino, Grace Cassidy and Claire Vannelli placed first in their first round heat before winning the semifinal 14 seconds ahead of their closest competitor, Boston College.

In the 2V8, the crew of Emilie Marchetti, Brielle Batesko, Tori Arendt, Breanna Briede, Lauren Lashmet, Sophia Blair, Julie Rohde, Laura Guth and Sydney Johnson took first in the first round heat and went on to take first in the semifinal with a time of 6:51.65 to finish ahead of Kansas (6:56.46).

The 2V4 boat of Sarah Baker, Shaye Bastien, Patricia Kolman, Kara Risser and Lauren Jadovich advanced to their grand final after having one of the fastest times in the semifinal after crossing the line at 8:06.64.

The Varsity Four and Novice Eight crew qualified for Sunday's petite finals after two tough semifinal match-ups. Both boats took first in their first round heats, but fell short in the semifinals with the V4 taking fourth and the novice eight finishing in third.

"I was very impressed with our performances today," said head coach Robyn Horner. "We definitely want to use the momentum from today's races heading into Sunday's finals."

The competition will continue on Sunday, as the Blue Devils will race three boats in the grand finals and two boats in the petite finals.
