The team finished out the season with successful results at our largest regatta this year, SIRA. Our Women's Varsity 4+ took 2nd in the B finals while our Novice Men's 4+ took 2nd in the C finals. Both squads put forward an outstanding effort in each event.
Some news about the past 2 and a half weeks of racing:
The weekend of March 29th, 2014 was the 28th annual John Hunter Regatta held at the Lake Lanier Olympic Rowing Center. With some difficult flights, the men's 4+ walked away with silver while the women's 4+ finished in a strong 4th place. Unfortunately, Lanier Sprints was cancelled on March 30th, but we got in some solid racing experience in the Men's novice 4+, Men's novice 8+ and Women's novice 4+.
This past weekend, on April 5th, was the Clemson Sprints regatta held on Lake Hartwell. Almost every boat took a medal home so it was a successful day of racing to say the least. The men's 4+ received 2nd place in the novice final while the women's 4+ placed 3rd in the varsity final. Lastly, without ever practicing together, the mixed open 8+ received 3rd place in their flight.
We are now recruiting for the Summer conditioning! If you're interested in learning how to row and having a good time by the river come join us this Summer.
