Emphatic return to IRA racing

The Ohio State Crew team produced resounding performances this past weekend in the team’s first return to Southern Intercollegiate Rowing Association’s regatta at Oak Ridge since 2011. Battling against a wealth of club competition and adverse weather, the Buckeyes came away with noteworthy races from several categories of competition. Credit due to the Novice Men’s 4 and Varsity Men’s 8 crews, as they posed several respectable races within the top ten of crews overall. Additionally, our Novice Men’s 8 earned a finish in the medals with their third place finish overall. Congratulations to all the crews that competed this past weekend!
