INDIANAPOLIS -- Barry University rowing crew's Varsity 8+ finished fourth at the NCAA Division II Championships Sunday at Eagle Creek Reservoir.

In their fifth straight trip to the NCAA national regatta, the No. 4-ranked Buccaneers' boat of coxswain Angela Dasch, stroke Kristina Boncheva, Beth Desmond,  Paola Girotto, Jelena Momirov, Luna Ugrenovic, Anais Foppoli, Mandy Carper and bow Ellie Hartman had a time of 7:31.274.

Humboldt State won the race in 7:13.405, followed by Nova Southeastern's 7:15.352 and Western Washington's 7:15.414. 

It culminated a season for the Bucs in which injuries and departures altered first-year coach Boban Rankovic's strategy. 

Only one of the rowers that made up this year's season-ending 8 is considered a senior.
