April 21, 2012

The No. 1 Virginia women's rowing team claimed their 12th ACC Championship in the last 13 years on Saturday. The Cavaliers came from behind to win the final three races and clinch their third title in a row.

“It was a great team win today!” head coach Kevin Sauer said. “Our Varsity Eight continues to push their limits and the 2V8 and Novice Eight also had good races.”

Sauer was named ACC Coach of the Year for the eighth time and the first Varsity Eight was named ACC Crew of the Year. The crew contained five All-ACC honorees including coxswain Sidney Thorsten, Keziah Beall, Martha Kuzzy, Kristine O’Brien, Sarah Cowburn.

Virginia finished with 56 points, followed by Clemson (52), Duke (39), Boston College (27), North Carolina (18) and Miami (17). UVa has now won 47 of the 52 ACC Championship races dating back to 2000.

The Cavaliers return to action April 28 when they travel to Columbus, Ohio to face Ohio State, Michigan and Harvard.
