The women’s rowing team performed very well this weekend, taking second in a 13-team field at the Rivanna Romp in Earlysville, Va. The varsity eights finished behind only Virginia, the ranking national champions, and Columbia’s 13:28 was just nine seconds behind the Cavaliers’ mark. The varsity A four took second and the B four finished fifth. The C and D varsity fours finished 11th and 14th, respectively, while the varsity eights B boat took seventh and the varsity eights C boat took 12th.
Four seniors reflect on their time at Columbia, and what it means to be leaving these years—and NYC—behind.
