Ann Arbor, MI
The full team gathered down on Argo on Saturday to face off against Michigan’s rivals from The Ohio State University in the annual Wolverbuck Dual. It was a chilly day, with spots of rain and drizzles throughout the racing.
The freshmen met expectations set throughout the season and defeated OSU in the Novice 8+ event. Several freshman were entered in the Collegiate 4+’s as well and made quite the statement, placing above varsity athletes in OSU’s B and C boats.
The first and second Varsity 8+’s continued Michigan’s 21-year streak and placed ahead of both boats from OSU in their race. Afterwards, the team derigged boats and winterized the boathouse, ready to hit the ergs and have an explosive winter training.
