CLEMSON, S.C. - The Oregon State Women's Rowing team came out strong on the first day of the Clemson Invitational, notching a first place finish in the Varsity 8 before the afternoon session was postponed due to inclement weather.

The V8 boat was dominant, posting a 7:08.4 to finish ahead of Gonzaga (7:11.0), Clemson (7:17.1), Columbia (7:17.9), Oklahoma (7:23.2) Tennessee (7:27.0), and Texas (7:40.2).

Following the first race of the day, the Beavs finished third in the Varsity 4 with a 9:00.7, beating out Tennessee by just under two seconds (9:02.0).

Oregon State continued to race well, grabbing hold of second in the 2V8. The Beavers were edged out by Clemson (7:26.9), but were able to hold off Gonzaga (7:31.6) by under one second.

The Beavers were able to sneak in one more race before weather became an issue, finishing fourth in the 3V8 with a time of 8:19.2.

“We were happy with how each boat raced today," Oregon State head coach Emily Ford said. "As we expected, the competition was excellent and we had the opportunity to test ourselves.  Each boat showed good composure in the rough conditions and great tenacity in the race approach."

Due to poor weather conditions, the Saturday afternoon session has been pushed back to Sunday morning. There will now be two sessions on Sunday, as racing is set to begin at 4:45 a.m. PT. The start time of the second session has yet to be determined, but will likely begin 30 minutes after the first session ends.

"Day one was a good start now it’s on to preparing for the two races ahead tomorrow morning," Ford said.
