OSU Finishes Sixth At Head Of The Charles

Oct. 19, 2003

BOSTON, Mass.- -

The Oregon State women's crew team opened the fall season Sunday finishing sixth at the Head of the Charles Regatta in Boston, Mass. This was the Beavers' first time at this event as the varsity four debuted in impressive fashion with a time of 18 minutes, 27.98 seconds.

'It's really early for us and it's a good start,' said OSU coach Charlie Owen of the V4 group that competed.

'This group is a small representation of our team, but it shows we can compete.'

Top team honors went to London Training Center with a final time of 17:27.356, well ahead of second-place Vesper Boat Club by more than 13 seconds.

The Beavers narrowly missed the top five by just over seven seconds, trailing closely behind Virginia in the nearly three-mile race.

OSU rows next at the Portland LOOP Regatta Oct. 25.
