Rowing Dominates Open 4 at Tail of the Fox

DePERE, Wisconsin – Inclement weather limited the MSOE rowing team to just two races but the Raiders made the most of them, winning the Open 4 and Mixed 8 races at the Tail of the Fox Regatta Sunday morning on the Fox River.

MSOE actually claimed the top three places in the Open 4, handily beating out crews from Michigan Tech, Northern Michigan, and Marquette. The top lineup posted a time of 15:21.0 while a veteran lineup in 'C' rowed 15:27.9. A young group in the 'B' entry was third in 15:50.3, almost a full 44 seconds ahead of MTU.

In the Mixed 8, four rowers combined with four members of the MSOE Women's Club Rowing Team to beat an entry from the host La Baie Verte Rowing Club. The Red & White boat rowed a time of 15:23.5 while the hosts posted a time of 17:18.8.

The remainder of the races were canceled due to the worsening weather conditions.

The Raiders return to the water next Sunday at the Head of the Rock Regatta in Rockford, Illinois.
