The St. Lawrence University women's crew team will open its 2013 season ranked No. 9 in the CRCA/US Rowing Division III Coaches Poll, which was released on Wednesday.
St. Lawrence is coming off of a solid fall season which included a top-10 finish in the collegiate eights race at the Head of the Charles Regatta. The Saints graduated only one woman from the nine in the 2012 varsity 8+, and had an excellent training trip during the University's spring break in Tampa, FL.
The top spot in the CRCA/US Rowing Division III Coaches Poll is occupied by Williams College, which received all 10 first place ballots.
St. Lawrence is slated to open its 2013 campaign with a race against RIT in Rochester, NY on Saturday, March 30.
