NEW HAVEN, CONN. – After the fourth northeaster of the season rolled up the eastern seaboard, the Bulldogs will brave the chilly temperatures and compete this weekend at the Duplin Women's Team Race held by Tufts.
After practicing almost entirely team racing over winter break, the Bulldogs have a definite edge over other teams, especially ones that do not value the power of their female team race team.
Skippering for the Bulldogs will be skippers senior Casey Klinger and sophomores Louisa Nordstrom and Chrissie Klingler with crews senior Claire Huebner and Caroline Colwell and first year Cate Mollerus.
Although this event does not serve as a qualifier, it will be a good indicator as to where the Bulldogs stand before they compete in first women's team race nationals to be held in late April of this year.
