Head of the Eagle

October 31, 2015

Indianapolis, IN  – On Saturday, October 31, the University of Michigan Men's Rowing Team raced at the Head of the Eagle in Indianapolis, Indiana. It was the squad's first full - team regatta of the fall, with the entire freshman class joining the varsity squad to race against competition from Midwest rivals Wisconsin, Notre Dame, Grand Valley, and elsewhere.

Racing opened at 9:05 AM with the Collegiate Pair. UM's B - Entry dominated the event, winning by nearly a minute, while Michigan's C - Entry and D - Entry finished fourth and fifth, respectively. The team's A - Entry flipped mid - race, and did not finish.

In the A - Final of the Collegiate 4 event, the Wolverines placed first, fourth, and ninth in the 12 - boat field. In the B - Final of the same event, UM placed first, third, and fourth in the six - boat field.

The squad entered its top varsity 8 in the Collegiate 8 A - Final, where they finished 12 seconds ahead of Grand Valley with a time of 14:53. In the B - Final, Michigan took three of the top four places, as well as tenth and twelfth.

The freshmen raced as a group for the first time this year, and produced some impressive results. In the A - Final of the Collegiate Novice 8, the freshmen placed sixth with a time of 17:03. In the B - Final, Michigan won handily with a time of 17:31, nearly 30 seconds ahead of second - place Purdue. The second freshman crew in the event finished sixth.

Finally, the novices also raced in the Collegiate Novice 4 events. In the A - Final, the top crew took a 20 - second victory over Wisconsin, while the B - Final entry defeated Wisconsin by a slim two - second margin.

The day ended with a 1000 - meter sprint run dual - style between select varsity crews. UM's top two varsity 8s competed, and won each of their races.

The team will return to Ann Arbor, where they will continue training before hosting Ohio State in the WolverBuck Dual for the first time since 2011 on Saturday, November 14, on Argo Pond.
