"It was a big day for the Hawks. We had all four boats reach the Grand Finals, we earned three medals and captured our first Murphy Cup win in the Varsity 8 since 2005. This was a breakthrough regatta for the program. We felt good about our winter training but having strong team results at our opening race is something our seniors having been working towards for four years," said head coach Mike Irwin. "We need to be faster to meet our goals for the season. The level of competition at the Dad Vail keeps getting stronger. We have to get right back to work on Monday morning if we want to compete for medals in May."

Next up for the Hawks is a home dual meet with Georgetown on April 1 at 2 p.m.
