Our novice women took third in a fast field of seventeen crews. For the first time ever, Granby was ranked (by the league up in northern Virginia) going into the event, reflecting our well-earned reputation for quality novice crews. And the WN4+ rose to the pressure of expectations, confirming that Granby novices go north to row fast and win medals. In heats, they took first over boats from much larger programs.
In finals, they extended their margin over the crew they defeated in heats by being the only team to go faster during their their second 1500m of the day.
