MAAC Championship Recap
The Marist Women’s Crew team won the 2013 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Rowing Championship and earned the conference’s first automatic NCAA Championships berth. The Red Foxes finished with 45 points, edging Fairfield by just two.
The MAAC championship is Marist’s 10th in program history, and first since 2008. At the New York State Collegiate Championships Marist made the finals in four events: Varsity Eight (Third), Varsity Four (Sixth), Novice Four (Second), and JV Eight (Second). The Marist program then headed to Philadelphia for the Dad Vails Regatta where the Varsity Eight team finished fifth to highlight the event for the Red Foxes.
NCAA Tournament Recap
The Marist Women’s Crew team finished on a fast note in the program’s first ever trip to the NCAA Rowing Championships in 2013. While the Red Foxes raced in the D final and finished 22nd overall in all three events, all three boats posted their top times of the weekend in the final race.
The day started early with the C/D semifinals for both the Second Varsity Eight and the Varsity Four after the races on the first day. The Red Foxes’ Second Varsity Eight had to re-run its race from the first day after officials deemed the race unofficial. Marist had finished third, appearing to advance to the C Final, after the boats from Oklahoma and Wisconsin were forced to stop after submerging. In the re-race, the Marist boat finished fifth in a time of 7:55.576, which at the time was its fastest time of the weekend. In the D Final, the Red Foxes improved its time from earlier in the morning by 14 seconds, crossing the finish line in 7:41.132.
The Varsity Four also had its semifinal postponed. The Red Foxes raced against Navy, Wisconsin, Oklahoma and Gonzaga in the C/D semifinal, finishing fifth with a time of 8:24.5. In the D Final, the Red Foxes improved their time by 24 seconds, crossing the finish line in 8:00.994, their best time of the weekend. The Varsity Eight boat, the only Marist boat to complete its semifinal race on Saturday, also finished its NCAA Championships in style. The Red Foxes finished in 7:16.290, beating its previous best time by nearly 40 seconds.
The 2013 NCAA Rowing Championships concluded the Red Foxes historic 2012-13 season. Marist won its 10th Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Championship back in April, and first since 2008, earning the conference’s first automatic qualification to the NCAA Rowing Championships. It was the first time in program history that Marist reached the NCAA Championships, and first time any team from the MAAC has qualified.
