Seattle University women’s rowing hosted the University of Portland at the Seattle Rowing Center in their first and only home race of the season.

“We had some good but challenging races today,” said interim head coach Jennifer Park. “I thought all the girls really pushed it. We know what we need to do this week to get ready for WIRAs next weekend.”

The SU Varsity 8+ narrowly finished second to the Pilots with a time of 7:23.3 to the visitors’ 7:21.44. The Novice 8+ and Novice 4+ also finished second in their respective races.

This was the first collegiate rowing appearance for Campbell Foster, Jennifer Cruz, Kelly Morris, and Mickayla Phillis.

The Redhawks will travel to Lake Natoma near Sacramento, Calif. next weekend (Apr. 27-28) for the Western Intercollegiate Rowing Association Championships (WIRAs), hosted by Sacramento State.
