DWR has a Successful Weekend in Clemson,SC

Duke Women's Rowing preformed well last weekend in Clemson, SC against Clemson & Boston University.  Each boat raced 2x2k at a stroke rating cap of 30 strokes per minute.  It was also our first 2k of the season! We are excited after this weekend to continue to bring the stroke rating up as we prepare for the Crew Classics regatta in San Diego next weekend! 

Below is a picture from last nights practice as the sun was setting over our beautiful lake!

Duke University Women's Rowing Scrimmages the University of Tennessee

   The Duke Women's Rowing team traveled to Oak Ridge Tennessee this weekend to scrimmage the University of Tennessee. Each boat raced four 1500 meter pieces. Duke's squad consisted of; a first varsity 8, a second varsity 8, a varsity 4, a second varsity 4, and a third varsity 4.  We had great success across the entire group during all four of the pieces.

    A big shout out goes to Duke's varsity eight and varsity 4 that won each of their races and stayed in front of the University of Tennessee!

   Today showed us just how much depth we have as a program and how exciting this spring season will be for us Blue Devils!!

                                                                   GO DUKE!
