The University of Miami rowing team turned in solid results, claiming two gold medals in the final day of competition, at the 25th Annual Head of the Hooch Regatta that took place Saturday and Sunday in Gainesville, Ga.

“Overall, it was a really good weekend,” said Head Coach Debra Morgan. “This weekend showed that we have a lot of depth. We’re getting positive feedback from all the work that they are putting in. I’m really happy with the results.”

Miami opened the regatta with a fifth-place finish in the championship 8+ with a time of 16:34.50, only six seconds behind first place finisher Tennessee. The Hurricanes were also merely two seconds behind in-state rival UCF, who finished fourth in a time of 16:32.50.

Miami placed all of its quad boats in the Top 13, including the bronze medalist crew of Meghan Leydecker, Marenda Chamberlin, Kelly Amsler, Marleena Eyre and Bethany Krawec, who crossed the finish in a time of 19:23.50.

The varsity eight crew of Laura Comeau-Cox, Marenda Chamberlin, Kelly Amsler, Marleena Eyre, Laura Coltman, Molly Wilson, Rachel Sporko, Elizabeth Skidmore and Jaquelene Heywood claimed Miami’s first gold medal of the regatta.

Miami’s crew of Emy Huntsman, Natasha Lejer, Bethany Krawec and Taurii Coyne also claimed a gold medal when they finished first in the quad ahead of Atlantic Coast Conference foe Duke.

The Hurricanes return to action Saturday, November 12 at the Florida Fall Classic in Melbourne, Fla.
