Women’s rowing competes at Head of the Hooch
After a long fall training schedule, the JU women’s rowing teams got its first test on the water as the Dolphins compete in the Head of the Hooch Regatta, Saturday on the Tennessee River in Chattanooga, Tenn.

JU, who did not compete in the First Coast Head Race due to lack of competition, had four boats competing as the squad lined up against someone other than themselves for the first time in the fall.

“The ladies are much further technically than last year at this time,” said JU head coach Kris Muhl. “Overall, they felt strong in their races and I think we are where we should be in this point in our training.”

The Women’s Championship 8 with coxswain Jamie Goldstein, Allison Sobiech, Danielle Fournier, Emily Close, Jill Carmody, Mary Mosier, Whitney Mathews, Morgan McTiernan and Candace Barber finished 26th out of 35 with a time of 17:16.1.

The Women’s Championship 4 “A” with coxswain Jamie Goldstein, Emily Close, Danielle Fournier, Mary Mosier and Jill Carmody placed 21st out of 42 with a time of 18:34. 2, the Women’s Championship 4 “B” consisting of coxswain Carolyn Barquist, Allison Sobiech, Whitney Mathews, Morgan McTiernan and Candace Barber finished 39th (20:10.3) and the Women’s Championship 4 “C” with coxswain Savannah Rice, Cassie Maclellan, Abby Siergik, Romi Delfino and Adrienne Santos placed 41st (20:17.6).
