CHERRY HILL, N.J.- The Alabama rowing team concluded competition at the Knecht Cup Regatta Sunday, highlighted by a win and a third place finish on the final day on the Cooper River.

"It is always nice to come home with some hardware," Alabama head coach Larry Davissaid. "In general, given what we have been working on this spring, the crews performed how we hoped. A lot of the girls have never been to a regatta this size but they all handled it well."

The Crimson Tide won the second novice 8+ final, edging UMass with a 7:49.59. The Minutewomen crossed the line in 7:50.95.

The second varsity 8+ took third with a 7:08.97, besting conference foe West Virginia in the petite final. The Tide took fifth in the first novice 8+ grand final with a time of 7:18.30.

"I was pleased with how the second varsity 8+ put together a top level racing plan and executed it," Davis said. "They are starting to do the things we want the other crews to do. It was a professional job executing the race plan and I hope that can be contagious."

Alabama will train through the week before returning to the water on April 26th when the Tide will compete against Indiana, Notre Dame and Iowa in Bloomington, Ind.
