|The News Page: Philly City Championships 5/7/06|
With the V8 now in 4's the Lightweight 4 from the last couple of weeks of racing combined with the JV 4 to make a JV 8. They made the finals as well taking 5th overall in their head race, and came in a solid 4th just out of the medals. Their sprint was essential to capture that 4th place spot, 6 seconds out of third in 5:41 and 4 seconds ahead of Belleville. They looked solid and will build speed as they work together over the next few weeks as well. Moving from 4's to an 8 or vice versa is never an easy task. The two craft feel very differently when rowed, and so recapturing the feel, timing, and swing that makes for a fast boat takes water time. The ladies can feel really proud of their performances.
