  • WORCESTER, MA – The Rutgers women’s crew finished third overall at the BIG EAST Challenge April 27 on Lake Quinsigamond in Worcester, MA.

    Rutgers tallied 89 points to finish behind Syracuse (112) and Notre Dame (110). The third-place finish tied Rutgers’ best-ever placing at the BIG EAST Challenge, matching the Scarlet Knights’ effort at the first-ever BIG EAST Challenge in 2001. The Orangewomen have now won each of the three BIG EAST Challenges.
