CHESTERTOWN, Md. -- The USRowing/Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association Preseason Division III poll was released today and the Washington College women's rowing team checked in as the seventh-ranked team on the list.
The Shorewomen are the defending Mid-Atlantic Rowing Conference (MARC) Champions, having earned the league's first automatic berth and the program's first-ever full-team berth to the NCAA Division III Championships last spring. The Shorewomen return 10 rowers and two coxswains from last spring's top two eights.
Washington will open its spring regatta schedule this Saturday, at home, against fifth-ranked Wellesley. Another MARC team, Marietta, joined the Shorewomen in the rankings, coming in at number 10.
