ACRA Championships marks end of 2017-2018 season

Ohio State Crew ended the 2017-2018 season with the ACRA national championship regatta in Gainsville, GA. Although tropical storm Alberto threatened to disrupt the regatta, racing persisted with a few weather related schedule changes. The team fielded both a men’s and women’s varsity 8+ for the first time since 2011. In addition the team also raced a men’s novice 8+, a men’s varsity 4+, and a men’s 1x. Strong racing was seen from all crews. Dillian Thomson sprinted into the A finals of the men’s 1x event, finishing 8th in the nation. Both the women’s varsity 8+ and men’s novice 8+ advanced to the petite finals. Kristina Hallof and Mark Fisher were named to the ACRA Great Lakes All-Region team for the third consecutive year and 8 team members were honored as ACRA Academic All-Americans. The weekend was a great end to the season for the senior class of 2018 and departing head coach Mark Williams. Photos can be found on row2k and full results are available here.
