Case Crew brings home the gold, wins bid to Head of the Charles Regatta

The 16th running of the Head of the Cuyahoga, held Sept. 17, was the first at the new Rivergate Park in Cleveland. The new Cleveland Rowing Foundation (CRF) boathouse played host of the event, which featured Case Crew winning five gold medals and one silver.

The Women’s Varsity 4+ event ended with the Case Crew women besting their rivals from John Carroll University by 11 seconds. This win garnered the team the Marcovy Cup, which has been awarded since 1990 and is only the second ever win for Case Crew.

The CWRU women also won the women’s pair and double races, while the men’s crew won gold in double and silver in the pair race. The men and women joined to win gold in the Mixed 8 race, beating crews from Cleveland State University, Miami University and University of Toledo.

The team will travel to Boston for the Head of the Charles Regatta Oct. 22.
