GOLD RIVER, Calif. - The Gonzaga Bulldogs’ varsity four crew defeated Drexel in the fourth level final of the IRA National Championships, on Lake Natoma in Gold River, Calif., on Sunday morning.

The Zags came home at 6:48.747, two seconds ahead of Drexel after overtaking them in the second half of the race. GU was also only one second off the pace of MIT and Dartmouth in the petite final as well.

“That was the most compete race for the weekend,” Gonzaga head coach Dan Gehn said. “We had good partial races earlier, but that was what we were looking for. They were down bow stern overlap and really pressed at 1000 meter mark, and again all the way from 600 meteres out. They came even with 250 meters to go and one more rating shift put us ahead.”

With the end of the competition, the Zags 2017 season officially comes to a close.

“We appreciate the support from the athletic department in getting us here,” Gehn said. “Lots of eyes were opened and lessons were learned being in this environment, and seeing a great deal of good rowing competition.”
