Following a strong performance in a repeat team victory at last weekend’s Dale England Cup, the Notre Dame women’s rowing team’s first varsity eight has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference rowing crew of the week. It was the first weekly honor earned by the Irish since joining the conference prior to this season.

The Irish lineup of coxswain Christina Dines, Teresa Rubinger, Hilary Shinnick, Anna Kottkamp, Ailish Sheehan, Erin Boxberger, Molly Bruggeman, Courtney Gaberino and Joanna Mulvey won all three races last weekend on Lake Lemon in Bloomington. The Irish eight logged the fastest time in the ACC this season with a 6:17.90 winning effort over No. 13 Indiana on Friday to open the Dale England Cup.
