The Cal Poly Humboldt women’s rowing team won a national championship with a perfect score on Saturday.

The Lumberjacks won both the Fours Grand Final and Eights Grand Final at the NCAA Division-II championships in New Jersey.

This is the third time in program history that the Cal Poly program has taken home a national title, having also done so in 2012 and 2014.

The nationals were held at Cooper River Park.

“I could not be more proud of our women’s rowing team,” Cal Poly Humboldt President  Tom Jackson Jr. said. “A great coaching staff led our outstanding student-athletes to the National Championship. The Cal Poly Humboldt campus, alumni, and friends applaud this outcome, a true legacy in Athletics.”

The Jacks knew going into the day that they had their work cut out for them as they had to take down rival and powerhouse University of Central Oklahoma, which also won both of its heats on Friday. 

UCO won three straight national championships from 2018-2021 (no champion was named in 2020). 

The Humboldt V4 lineup consisted of Emily Daniels (coxswain), Sarah Lorenzini, Kylie Mosley, Chloe Pieper-Wasem and Gewndolyn Sutton.

The Humboldt V8 lineup included coxswain Sonja Scollon and Malia Seeley, Alyssa Paynton, Gabriella Griffin, Dana Foley, Cassidy Hollenbeck, Kealey Scott, Elizabeth Walters and Molly Urtz.

The team is coached by head coach Matt Weise and assistants Ashley Donnell and Patrick Hyland.
