ODU finished in first place in the Women's Club 4+ and the College and Club Novice 8+. Old Dominion won bronze the next day in the Women's Open 8+ race.
"Everyone is really excited to race this weekend," ODU co-captain Paige Madison said. "Not only do we get to go up against the national champion but also Oklahoma who is in our conference. After such a strong performance at the Head of the Hooch, I'm excited to see how the rest and extra practice improves our performance. The team will do what it does best, race. We know how to win and that's all we need to do."
