Lowell, MA --- Dangerous water conditions along the Merrimack River forced an early ending to WPI women's rowing season opener in the Textile River Regatta on the Merrimack River. The Crimson and Gray was only able to participate in a pair of races before the decision was made to cancel the rest of the events.
The Engineers had a strong showing in the club eight with the A boat placing third in a time of 22:37.483 and the B boat crossing the line in eighth with a time of 24:05.591. Additionally Victoria Loehle (Morganville, NJ) raced to a seventh place showing (34:51.549) in the open one.
WPI hosts the Quinsigamond Snake Regatta on Saturday, October 10th.
