11/04/12 – A busy weekend for Michigan was tied up on Sunday, when the team traveled to Ford Lake in Ypsilanti, MI, for a race against Midwest teams in the Head of the Huron. Crews in attendance hailed from Grand Valley State University, Purdue University, Michigan State University, University of Toledo, and the University of Wisconsin.
Each varsity men’s event was won by Michigan in a convincing manner. The closest race of the day – by far – was the Vartsity 8+ AB event, where the Michigan A 8+ was just 3.2 seconds ahead of Michigan State. In the freshman events, the Wisconsin Badgers proved to have the fastest freshman crews. The Michigan boats that finished behind the Wisconsin in the freshman events nonetheless posted times well ahead of the rest of the pack.
