A team of Kelly Minard (coxswain), Katie Benham (4), Helen Nelson (3), Sam Hershey (2), and Liz Brodie (1) paced the field with a time of 7:36.882, nearly 12 seconds ahead of North Park in second (7:48.050). 

The Diplomats time was also good enough to beat out a boat from Mercyhurst in third, as well as Nova Southeastern, Assumption, and Washington College. 

The Dad Vail Regatta concluded the 2017-18 season for the F&M women's rowing team, who is set to return to the water in the fall.
