Women's Crew—2008-09 Season Overview
2007-08 Season Outlook
With a strong core of seniors who have been mainstays of the program for three years, and with significant contributions in all the crews from a solid group of underclassmen, the Mules look to maintain their traditional place among the best college rowing programs in the country.
The Colby women begin the 2007-08 season with a fall schedule, including the prestigious Head of the Charles Regatta. Colby's spring schedule is challenging with the New England Rowing Championships, the ECAC National Invitiational, and the NCAA Division III Championships.
The Colby women’s varsity eight finished the 2006-07 season with a 7-4 dual race record, finished sixth at the New England Rowing Championships, and every women’s crew earned selection to the ECAC National Invitational Regatta.
Austin Phillips ’07 became the fifth rower named to the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association’s All-American list when she was selected to the second team, and for the second straight year four members of the varsity eight were named National Scholar Athletes.
