CLEMSON, S.C. - The 18th-ranked Louisville rowing team earned an impressive varsity eight win during the final day of the two-day Clemson Invite on Sunday at Lake Hartwell.
The Cardinals' varsity eight crew of Ellen Fawcett (coxswain), Darya Marchanka, Hannah Ritter, Erin Bennett, Amy Van Syoc, Kara Savegnago, Katya Monchenko, Morgan Dunham and Sam Sinnett earned their second race win of the weekend finishing with a time of 6:46.7 to edge a trio of ranked squads -- No. 14 Clemson, No. 19 Cornell and No. 20 Duke. Michigan State and Oklahoma, two programs also receiving votes in this week's coaches' poll, finished fifth and sixth respectively.
Louisville's second varsity eight crew also competed on Sunday earning a fourth-place finish behind No. 19 Cornell, Oklahoma and No. 14 Clemson while finished ahead of Michigan State and No. 20 Duke. The Cardinals' had four other crews - three varsity four boats and a novice eight boat - scheduled to race on Sunday but due to windy conditions, those race results were determined to be unofficial by the chief official of the event.
