  • NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ – The Rutgers women’s crew swept Connecticut in five races on the Raritan River April 6.

    “I’m very pleased with our effort today,” Rutgers women’s head coach Max Borghard said. “Our women are starting to feel very confident about what they are doing.”

    The varsity eight, consisting of junior Carin Busch (Stewartsville, NJ) [1], sophomore Lauren Kolb (Neshanic Station, NJ) [2], sophomore Erin White (Milford, CT) [3], senior Emma Carcagno (Pennington, NJ) [4], senior Sarah Kovach-Orr (Metuchen, NJ) [5], senior Erin McBride (Chesterfield, NJ) [6], senior Tina VanDerMeiren (Mt. Holly, NJ) [7], junior Nancy Erickson (Hazlet, NJ) [8] and junior Brenda Walk (Ventnor, NJ) [coxswain], defeated Connecticut (7:01.6) with a time of 6:48.2.

    In the second varsity, the Scarlet Knights (7:05.4) defeated the Huskies (7:21.4). Both of RU’s novice boats earned wins, as the first novices recorded a time of 7:13.7 and the second novices finished the course in 7:32.4. Rutgers’ third varsity four (8:09.9) also were winners.

    The Scarlet Knights will next be in action Saturday, April 12, when RU hosts Brown on the Raritan River.
