William Smith went head-to-head with Rochester on the Genesee River on Sunday, besting the Yellowjackets by more than 11 seconds. The Herons covered the 2,000-meter course in 7 minutes, 5.15 seconds. The varsity eight was powered by senior Kenzie Cannon, senior Alexandra Bowers, senior Kerry O’Neill, senior Anne Wakeman, junior Jamie Billington, sophomore Crary Chandler, senior Emily Maguire, first-year Claire Brown, and senior Caitlin Holtz.
The Herons have won five out of a possible six Boat of the Week awards this season.
William Smith will be back on the water April 18, when the Herons travel to Saratoga Springs for a showdown with conference rival Skidmore.
