Gonzaga women finish 20th at NCAA rowing championships

INDIANAPOLIS – The Gonzaga women’s rowing team finished 20th at the NCAA Championships at the Indianapolis Rowing Center at Eagle Creek Park on Sunday.

Gonzaga’s varsity eight took first in the D Final to place 19th overall and the second varsity eight finished third in the D Final (22nd overall). The varsity four claimed second, also in the D Final (20th overall).

“It was an amazing opportunity to race at the national championship, and we are so grateful for all the hard work from our senior class,” said GU coach Marisa Wortman. “I know the returners are looking forward to continuing to build on this season’s successes.”

The Bulldogs will return a solid group for the 2019-20 season including three-time WCC Coxswain of the Year Alexa Jadallah, reigning Newcomer of the Year Grace Cahalane and All-WCC performers Lauren McCallum and Zoe Calambokidis.

Washington swept the three Grand Finals and won the team championship for the second time in three years. Texas finished second and Michigan took third.
