INDIANAPOLIS - The University of Notre Dame rowing team qualified a pair of boats Friday for the A/B semifinal round on day one of the 2013 NCAA Championship at Eagle Creek Park. The Irish second varsity eight and varsity four launches will race Saturday in an attempt to become the first NCAA Grand Final qualifier in program history.

Notre Dame's first varsity eight opened the morning session with a third-place finish in the third heat of eight-squad racing, posting a time 7:07.338. In the most competitive race of the championship, coxswain Abby Meyers, Joanna Poinsatte, Stephanie O'Neill, Joanna Mulvey, Courtney Gaberino, Erin Boxberger, Ailish Sheehan, Anna Kottkamp and Molly Bruggeman finished 0.560 out of the top spot in the first eight repechage heat with a 7:05.656 clip. Stanford (7:05.360) held on for the team victory, while Yale (7:05.096) earned runner-up honors.

After a third-place result (7:15.092) against top-ranked opponents Southern California (6:56.304) and Princeton (6:58.556) in the second varsity eight third preliminary heat, Notre Dame logged a runner-up effort in the repechage heat. Coxswain Christina Dines, Paige Aiello, Teresa Blumenstein, Ingrid Woelfel, Carlee Beckler, Rose Doerfler, Kelsey Haddad, Kelsey Sekanick and Teresa Rubinger completed the course in 7:27.079 to cross the line behind heat winner Yale (7:22.958) and secure an entry into the A/B semifinal at 9:40 a.m. (ET) Saturday.

In the fourth and final preliminary heat of varsity four competition, the Irish launch of coxswain Danni Schneider, Kelsey Murphy, Ellen Gleadow, Stella Willoughby and Kiersten DeHaven clocked in at 8:07.379. The Notre Dame time was the second-fastest of the round behind Washington (8:01.718) and assured the Irish an outright bid to the A/B semifinal at 10:20 a.m. (ET) Saturday.
