Spring Rowing Season Opens With Positive Results

Spring Rowing Season Opens With Positive Results

The MSOE rowing teams opened up the spring slate of the season over the past couple of weeks, participating in a meet hosted by Adrian College and the Milwaukee Open. The Raiders have turned in positive results so far, having finished in first or second in every race they have entered.

Adrian College hosted the first meet of the spring back on March 29th, welcoming MSOE, North Park, and Ohio Wesleyan. Each team had to battle the elements, facing a strong headwind and dealing with intermittent rain throughout. The women did not run in a varsity competition but came in first in the second novice four race and second in the third. The men took top honors in three of the four races, beating Adrian each time and only losing to them by .3 seconds in their only defeat.
