BRIEFS

Rowing
The University of Miami women’s rowing team will compete in the XXXIX Head of the Charles Regatta in Cambridge-Boston, Mass., October 18 and 19.
The two-day event features over 7,000 athletes from around the world competing in 21 races and attracts up to 300,000 spectators. The world’s largest regatta begins at Boston University Bridge and concludes at the Elliot Bridge.
The Hurricanes will be led by the Varsity 8+ crew of sophomore coxswain Laura Comeau, sophomore stroke Ashley Marincsin, senior Jenny Krawec, senior Jacqui Julien, junior Deirdre Curran, senior Ananda Chou, senior Caroline Stuart, sophomore Aoife Forde and senior bow Jordanna Heywood which set a new course record with a time of 15:37:82 at the Head of the Creek Regatta on October 12 last sunday. Last year at the Head of the Charles, the UM Varsity Eight placed 42nd in the Champion Eight event after being assessed a one minute penalty for interfering with another crew’s progress on the race course.
“We’re definitely looking to better out result from last year,” Head Coach Debra Morgan said. “The crew is really driven to see how high they can place.”
This will mark the first time in school history the Hurricanes will have a crew in the Youth 8 event, a lineup that requires each member of the crew to be under the age of 20 and must be either a high school student or freshman in college. The crew includes coxswain Meghan Leydecker, stroke Karen Wiley, Sarah Conlon, Valerie Webb, Laura Coltman, Alicia Alamar, Ashley Via, Molly Wilson, and bow, Marenda Chamberlin.
After the Head of the Charles the Hurricanes will return to action on November 1st at the Head of the Chattahoochee in Gainesville, Ga.

Women’s Golf
University of Miami junior Tina Miller shot a final round 74 to win the Beacon Woods Invitational at Beacon Woods Country Club in Bayonet Point, FL.
The win is the second of the season for Miller, who also won the season-opening Cougar Classic earlier this year, and is the fourth of her career. Miller finished the tournament with an even-par 216 (70-72-74) to defeat FIU’s Courtney Burdick (73-73-73-219) and USF’s Jill Crowe (69-77-73-219) by three strokes.
Overall the Hurricanes shot a final round 302 to finish in fourth-place (300-308-302-910). Host South Florida won the team championship with a three-round score of 891 (293-304-294).
Miami senior Camilla Hilland also played well tying for 12th with a three-round total of 224 (73-78-73).
