DURHAM, N.C. – The Duke rowing team opened its fall season this morning, welcoming the North Carolina women’s rowing team to Lake Michie for a Pride Race scrimmage.

The Blue Devils raced four varsity 8+ boats on the course this morning and came away with the top-two finishing spots.

“Today was a great day for both Duke and North Carolina,” head coach Megan Cooke Carcagno said. “We hosted our first Pride Race and I’m proud of the support we show every athlete in our arena. Our women raced well – it was nice to see us take first and second. We are set to have a great fall!”

Duke’s top varsity 8+ began the fall with a first-place showing, finishing in 14:11.7. The Blue Devils’ A boat of Meagan Lew, Isabel Ruby-Hill, Sarah Fletcher, Shannon Tierney, Olivia Mendonca, Lelia Boley, Abby Artmann, Taji Phillips and Celia Macrae spearheaded the performance.

The Blue Devils’ second varsity 8+ boat took second to clock in at 14:33.1 and was led by Tara Fagan, Catherine Dana, Caitlyn Carlisle, Katherine Lustig, Anne Klok, Sophie Simister, Laura Navarrete, Rhea Bergman and Tara Christensen.

Duke’s Varsity 8+ C crew raced to a fourth-place finish in a time of 15:01.9 with Jiahui Liao, Olivia Hunt, Madison Brown, Grace Garverick, Sydney Cikovic, Maya Blake, Anna Jenkins, Kiernan Spencer and Reed Kenny at the helm.

The Varsity 8+ D boat rounded out the overall performance for the Blue Devils in seventh place in 15:41.3. Rani Duff, Bailey Knight, Marissa Donadio, Ema Kuczura, Alexa Campbell, Olivia Vogel, Savannah Herbek, Bella Miller and Sarah Hubner raced for the Blue Devils.

The Blue Devils will continue the fall slate, traveling to Boston, Mass., for the Head of the Charles on Oct. 22.
