IOWA FIRST VARSITY EIGHT

The Hawkeyes' first varsity eight boat ended the week with an impressive victory over George Washington in the chilly waters of the Potomac River in Washington, D.C.  Competing in winter-like conditions with a 20 mph. tailwind and 20 degree windchill, Iowa captured the win with a time of 6:22.1, besting GW (6:22.4) by just three-tenths of a second.  The winning time was the just the second-fastest mark for the Hawkeyes this spring.  Iowa returns to action April 14, traveling to St. Paul, Minn., to compete against Minnesota, Wisconsin, Drake and Oregon State.
