CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. – The Embry-Riddle women’s rowing team took part in the Head of the Hooch regatta on Saturday, with the Novice 8+ boat taking eighth place to highlight the day’s results.
The Novice 8+ boat clocked a time of 17:13.344 to finish eighth in a field of 39 boats. The Eagle boat consisted of Gwendolyn Powell, Alexandra Popielarz, Bethany Thompson, Becca McBride, Caleigh Bocrie, Jodie Harmon, Tracey Loeffler, Sydney Link, and Margaret Pisacano.

“We’re very proud of the work the team has been putting in this fall,” Head Coach Jamie Francis said. “The Hooch is a good place to test that work against some of the fastest programs in the region. With one more race this fall we’re looking forward to the Head of the South as well as looking beyond to the spring season.”
Next up, the Blue and Gold will travel to Augusta, Georgia on Saturday, Nov. 10, to participate in the Head of the South, which will serve as ERAU’s final fall regatta.
