OAK RIDGE, Tenn. – Another strong showing at the top of the boating lineup worked to the advantage of the University of Notre Dame rowing team during the final day of racing at the Oak Ridge Cardinal Invitational Sunday on Melton Lake. The Irish brought home three event victories, along with a pair of runner-up finishes, to close their Spring Break training trip in Oak Ridge.
The day got started with the Notre Dame varsity eight taking the team’s first of three straight races against Duke. The Irish lineup of coxswain Christina Dines, Teresa Rubinger, Courtney Gaberino, Elizabeth Kelley, Anna Kottkamp, Ailish Sheehan, Erin Boxberger and Molly Bruggeman posted a convincing near 10 second win (6:40.500) over the Blue Devils (6:50.125) on Sunday morning. Notre Dame’s top eight closed the weekend with two wins in its three race starts, with the only setback being a tight defeat at the hands of national contender Virginia on Saturday.
