Rowing Varsity Eight Selected as WPI Women's Student-Athletes of the Week

The very rare back-to-back honoree completed a memorable weekend Sunday by defeating top-ranked and defending NCAA champion Bates in thrilling fashion on Lake Quinsigamond. The race came down to the final 10 strokes with WPI claiming the victory by just 0.34 seconds over Bates (6:37.40 to 6:37.74). The Engineers, second in the latest USRowing/CRCA Division III Top 15, also knocked off No. 3 Williams to take home the Donahue Cup on Saturday.
