1st women's VIII, Novice VIIIs

1st round
Beat Exeter College, Oxford (3 lengths)
This was a good solid row, once we had established a lead. [by the webmaster]
2nd round
Beat Girton (1/3 length)
This was a personal grudge battle after last term and fantastic to row in and cross the line first! [by the webmaster]
3rd round
Lost to Keble College, Oxford
This was a good race; starting from behind on the inside lane of the curved course, the crew worked well and drew level with Keble over the first part of the race. Keble worked hard in the second half, however, and we just weren't quite strong enough to continue our advances. We lost by a length or two. (Sally)

1. Close finish, vs Girton
2. Nearing the finish

1st women's VIII, College VIIIs

1st round
Beat Exeter College, Oxford (2 lengths)
Exeter seemed to work harder in the first part of the race than they had in the Novice VIIIs competition, starting from behind on the inside line and drawing level. It was only from about half way that we were able to begin pushing ahead - another good race and a pleasing win. [by the webmaster]
2nd round
Lost to Merton College, Oxford
Merton had just beaten Twickenham comfortably in S2, so we weren't expecting an easy row. We lost by 2 or 3 lengths but we had a really strong and much more relaxed rhythm than the last 3 races so were pleased with the race even if the result wasn't in our favour. All in all, a great day's racing. (Sally)
