ACC 2013 TEAM
Incredible racing from the team. Varsity 4+ started the day with a big 2nd place finish behind #6 UVA and in front of #16 Clemson. The 2nd Varsity 8+ raced incredibly aggressive into a tough head wind and finished 4th just behind Miami. And the big race of the day came from the Varsity 8+. The boat was just behind Clemson and UVA pushing it's lead, when coxswain Caroline Kiritsy called a move to pull up with Clemson at the 750m to go. Once even, Duke put on a great sprint and finished 3 seconds ahead of #16 Clemson and only 8 seconds behind #6 UVA. UVA is one of the fastest eights in the country according to cMax polls (I would agree) and this puts our eight in the speed of other top 10-12 boats in the country. "Go to the Speed!" Nice job Duke!
