BOSTON - Columbia junior Nikki Bourassa won the Under-23 collegiate lightweight catergory at this weekend's CRASH-B World Indoor Rowing Championships. Bourassa was the third lightweight woman overall, eight seconds behind the top finisher, Nienke van Hoogenhuyze of the Netherlands.

Bourassa was the top female collegiate finisher among 71 lightweight women in the 2000-meter "distance", rowing on ergometers.

A native of Pennsauken, N.J., Bourassa is only Columbia's second female CRASH-B titlist. The first was current women's rowing assistant coach Libby Peters '06CC.

Bourassa's classmate Lily Keane also competed in the CRASH-B competition and recorded a personal best of 7:09.1.

CRASH-B stands for the self-named founders of the race, the Charles River All Star Has-Beens.

The Columbia women will begin their 2012 spring racing season at Florida Tech for the annual Governor's Cup on Saturday, March 17.
