ALEXANDRIA, VA. - Old Dominion Boat Club’s women’s freshman eight rowed to a third-place finish in one of the biggest races of the fall season, the Head of the Schuylkill.

The race takes place on Philadelphia’s Main Line, past the city’s historic boathouse row. Nearly 9,000 rowers typically compete in the 40-year-old regatta. This year’s race took place on a cold, damp day, when delays related to the sheer number of rowers meant teams waited on the river long past scheduled start times.

“I was worried about the time because we started 40 minutes late, and I was scared the girls were getting cold,” said Maddy Glanz, freshman eight coxswain. “Also, before the race, my microphone broke, causing us to have to rewire the whole boat. Thank goodness we got it done in time!”

The ODBC freshman eight pushed through the cold and finished the race with a time of 15:52.262. Saugatuck Rowing won with a time of 15:11.552.
