CAMDEN, N.J. - The Duke women's rowing team captured two medals on Sunday in the grand finals of the 2012 Knecht Cup on Cooper River. Duke's top boat claimed first in the women's varsity eight while the second varsity eight finished second in the final day of competition.
The women's varsity four was the closest race of the day, as the Blue Devils earned second place in the petite final with a time of 7:49.23 to cross the finish line less than .40 seconds behind Loyola.
"All of our boats had strong showings this weekend," said head coach Robyn Horner. "The varsity eight has won here before, but this is the first time the second varsity eight has medaled here which is amazing. These races helped us see what we need as we head into ACC's, and we will use this weekend as motivation for preparation."
