WORCESTER, Mass. - The Assumption women's rowing program had a pair of solid performances, despite the poor racing conditions in racing against No. 15 Mount Holyoke and Coast Guard on Saturday morning.

The Varsity 8 raced at 8:40 a.m. and came in third with its time of 8:52.8. Mount Holyoke won in a time of 7:58.5 while Coast Guard placed second in 8:00.0. In the Varsity 4 race, the Lyons' A and B boats took first and second while Assumption's Varsity 4 took third. The 2nd Varsity 4 was blown out of alignment at the start of the race and was unable to complete the race.
