WELCOME TO GSU CREW
Late October, the team traveled to Oak Ridge, Tennessee for this year's Secret City Head Race. The weather was perfect for competing, and entered in the day's races were two Mixed 4+'s, a Men's 4+, and a Mixed 8+. During the Mixed 4+, one of the Georgia State boats placed won bronze in third place, only one second behind UTC, coming in at 21:54.1. The Men's 4+ also raced later that day against 6 other boats, and the race was the milestone for one of the novice coxswains as well. In the final race of the day, Georgia State Mixed 8+ came in second behind UTC at 20:54.9.
The day was a source of pride for the team, having medalled twice, and the regatta went smoothly overall.
On October 8th, 2016 Gsu crew woke up early to make the trek to Chattanooga for the annual Chattanooga Head Race. Entered to race that day was a Men's Varsity 4+, Women's Championship 1x, Mixed 8+, and two Mixed Master 4+'s. Due to the windy weather, the course was shortened from 5000m to 2500m. The wind meant that the Novice Mixed 4 was scratched, but the Varsity Mixed 4 still competed later that day. The Men's Varsity 4+ raced against 27 other boats in the third race of the day, while our team captain came in first for the Women's Championship 1x. Despite the intense winds constantly pushing the boat, the Mixed 8+ still competed, which was the first event for all of the season's novice rowers. The Mixed 4 that stayed in the race won gold as they came in with a time of 10:38.1.
The Chattanooga Head Race was a great intro to the season, and the Gsu crew is proud of it's Women's Championship 1x and Mixed Masters 4+ that won first that day!
GSU Crew's 2016 Spring season came to a close this weekend as we competed in Oak Ridge, TN at the SIRA Championship Regatta. The day opened with time trials, where our WV4+ posted a time of 7:06.56, which qualified them for the B heat of the semifinals, our MN4+ posted a time of 7:04.09, which qualified them for the D heat of the lower finals, and our MV4+ posted a time of 7:20.15, which qualified them for the E heat of the lower finals. During the afternoon races, the WV4+ posted a time of 8:34.14, which placed second in their heat and qualified them for the A heat of the Grand Final on Sunday, the MN4+ posted a time of 8:21.12, and the MV4+ posted a time of 8:33.44.
In the Grand Final on Sunday, the WV4+ posted a time of 8:17.72, giving them a fifth place finish in their championship heat.
GSU Crew is happy to close its 2016 Spring season season on a successful note. We are very proud of all of the work that was put in by our competitors this season and the results that it produced and are exited to begin summer training to prepare for the 2016 Fall season!
GSU Crew made a trip to Guntersville, AL this weekend to compete with crews from LSU, Berry, and Samford in a friendly scrimmage to prepare for SIRA the following weekend. Unfortunately, weather conditions in Guntersville brewed winds that made conditions on the race course unsafe to row. Leadership within the crews in attendance decided to make the best of a bad situation and rent out the use of a local workout facility with access to ERGs and hold a relay-based ERG sprint race for each scheduled race. At the end of all races GSU Crew left with a First Place finish in the Mixed 4+ and MV4+, Second in the WV4+, and Third in the MV4+. Once all scheduled races were complete, the crews decided to also field a coxswain race with four coxswains per team completing a 1000 meter relay; GSU Crew took home second in this event as well. We look forward to closing out our season next weekend at the SIRA Championship Regatta!
GSU Crew entered the weekend of the Clemson Sprints hoping to race a WV4+, MN4+, and a Mixed 8+; however, the weather at Lake Hartwell did not agree with the Panthers' plans. Unfortunately, high winds created conditions on the water that led officials to cancel all afternoon races. This left the MN4+ and Mixed 8+ unable to compete. Before the conditions were deemed unsafe to row, however, the WV4+ competed and were able to place 4th in their heat with a total time of 9:02.20. GSU Crew is proud of its women and looks forward to competing next weekend in a Southeastern scrimmage!
GSU Crew returned from Gainesville, GA this past weekend after competing in the John Hunter Regatta, held at the Lake Lanier Olympic Venue. After racing the top men's novice four, men's varsity four, and women's novice four, GSU Crew is axcitedly preparing for the Clemson Sprints to be held on April 2!

The Georgia State Rowing Club closed the Fall 2015 season at the Head of the South Regatta in Augusta, GA this past weekend, November 14, 2015. GSU competed in multiple categories including the Men's Club 4+, Men's Championship 2x, Men's Freshmen Novice 4+, and Mixed 4+. Our Men's Freshmen Novice 4+ boat took home bronze medals with a course time of 18:10.1 and our Mixed 4+ A boat took home gold medals with a course time of 17:25.7. Congratulations to all of our rowers on a great regatta and a successful Fall 2015 season!
