CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -
The Alabama rowing team picked up a top-15 finish in the Club 8+ race on day one of the venerable Head of the Charles Regatta in Cambridge, Mass.
The Crimson Tide Varsity 8+ boat of Elizabeth Van Zandt, Courtney Atkinson, Caitlin O'Neil, Alyssa Drevenak, Jennifer Parker, Kate Bishop, Maureen Purcell, Erin Delaney and Logan O'Neil crossed the finish line with a time of 17:39.93 in 11th place.
The Tide finished nearly four seconds ahead of 12th place Holy Cross and just a quarter of a second behind 10th place Boston College. With its top-half finish, the Tide 8+ has earned an invitation to next year's Head of the Charles.
The Tide is slated to compete in the women's Champion 4+ race on Sunday, with a start time of approximately 2:45 p.m. ET.
