Rowing Season Begins This Weekend at Oak Ridge

Spartans Face Earliest Start Since 2009

2014: Academic All-Big Ten... Finished second by three seats to Iowa, but had open-water over third-place Penn in the second varsity eight at the Clemson Invitational (4/20)... Defeated Rutgers and Boston in the second varsity eight race (3/28)... Varsity four defeated Duke by three seconds on the first day of the Oak Ridge Cardinal Invitational (3/15).

2013: Fell to Michigan in the season opener (March 30) at home by open water in the four seat of the novice eight, clocked in a time of 7:33.30, but closed the margin against Notre Dame in falling to the Irish in the afternoon session ... Rowed in the seven seat of the novice eight in a four-boat race with Big Ten foes Michigan, Ohio State, and Indiana (April 13) when conditions forced a change from a double-dual format. Finished third in a time of 7:05.3, half a length ahead of fourth-place Indiana and a length behind second-place Ohio State ... Lined up with some of the best crews in the country at the Clemson Invitational (April 20-21). Rowed in the seven seat for the first novice entry, which won both of its races. The boat finished with the sixth-fastest time of the day and won its morning race in a time of 7:04.06; its winning time in the afternoon session was 6:53.3 ... The Sunday racing for the novice eights at Clemson was wiped out due to weather conditions ... Raced Big Ten foes Minnesota and Wisconsin in the final week of the regular season (May 5), and rowed to a third-place finish (6:42.6) as the seven seat in the novice eight. In one of the tightest races of the day, Wisconsin finished in 6:57.1, Minnesota in 6:58.8, and MSU just a length behind in 7:02.9 ... Helped the novice eight finish one spot better than its seeding at the Big Ten Championships (May 19). In the five seat, finished fourth in a time of 7:14.462. The Spartans finished fourth in the team standings with 85 points, behind champion Ohio State, Michigan, and Wisconsin.
