WHITNEY POINT, N.Y. --- The spring crew season ended Sunday when high winds forced nearly all of the races to be called off at the Eastern College Athletic Conference National Invitational Regatta.

The varsity eight boats did get to run semifinal heats. The Colby women placed fourth in their heat and had the ninth-best time at 6:58.967. The women would have qualified for the Petite Final (places 6-12).

The Colby men were second in their semifinal heat and were 13th overall in 6:04.729. The only other Colby boat to get in the water Sunday was the second women's varsity eight with a sixth-place finish in 7:15.716 in a heat.
