Indiana Rowing to Host West Virginia Saturday
April 4, 2014
The Indiana Rowing team will continue the spring slate when it plays host to West Virginia on Lake Lemon, Saturday, April 4.
The Hoosiers are coming off a sweep of Dayton and Duquesne in the First Varsity 8, Second Varsity 8, Varsity 4 and Novice 8 last weekend from the Dale England Rowing Facility. With limited water time, head coach Steve Peterson is pleased with IU's performances this early in the season.
"This past weekend I thought was very successful," Peterson said. "We always talk about the number one goal when you're racing is to win the race and across the board we won the races and we're very happy with that. The second thing I think from the technical standpoint, our goal has just been trying to establish race line-ups, establish a rhythm for each of the crews and how we're going to race. I think that was a big factor for our success over the weekend. I feel like we're doing a pretty good job of that."
Saturday's racing will get underway at 8:30 a.m. from the Dale England Rowing Facility on Lake Lemon. Indiana will be back in action when it travels to Iowa City for a Big Ten Double Dual against Iowa and Louisville.
