Tail of the Fox

Marquette Crew travelled up to De Pere, Wisconsin on the weekend of October 5th and 6th for the 24th Tail of the Fox Regatta. This was the novice’s first regatta, and luckily for them, was only 3500 meters. Marquette raced all four squads at this race, with the novice and varsity women racing both 4+ and 8+ boats.

The novice women’s 4+ kicked off the regatta for Marquette Crew, finishing 2nd in their race, with an overall time of 16:04.5. The two 8+ boats battled each other to the finish line, with the A boat finishing in 1st place (15:31.5) and the B boat following close behind in 2nd (16:45.2). The novice men also had a successful race, completing the course in 13:10.0, claiming 2nd place. All the novice rowers went home with their first medals.

The varsity men raced their 8+, placing 4th in their race at a time of 11:48.9. The varsity women’s 8+ successfully finished the race in 1st place, at 13:36.5, 30 seconds in front of the next boat. The lightweight 4+ fought for a time of 14:36.4, seizing 2nd place.

Congrats to the novice for finishing their first regatta, and to all the athletes who medaled.  And a special thanks to the Dahleens, who graciously hosted us for dinner Saturday night, making sure we were properly fueled for the upcoming race!
