NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. - The Stanford Novice Women's rowing team opened their season on Sunday at the Newport Autumn Rowing Festival in Newport Beach, CA. The eight finished fourth out of 22 total entries in the novice category.

Coach Carrie Davis praised coxswain Kelly Garneski for a fine performance in navigating the 2.7 mile course. This was the first rowing race ever for eight of the nine athletes as they are true novice with just four weeks of rowing experience.

Coach Davis is 'very encouraged' by their performance and looks forward to improving next weekend at the Red Head regatta at the Port of Redwood City.
