Illinois Collegiate Rowing Invitational 2015

Spring racing has officially started for Marquette Crew! This weekend, all squads rowed in the 3rd Annual Illinois Collegiate Rowing Invitational in DeWitt, IL. This regatta proved to be an excellent showcase of the talent in Midwestern club rowing, with 12 teams from across the region represented in the entries. Our athletes took advantage of the excellent conditions to row competitively, bringing home some hardware in the process. The Varsity Women's 8+ took 3rd overall, as did the Varsity Men's Lightweight 4+ and Novice Women's 4+. The Novice Women's First and Second 8+ both placed 1st in their respective events. The Women's team also came in 3rd for the Women's Points Trophy. The long hours dedicated to grueling indoor training throughout the winter are evident in the strength each squad displayed on the water this weekend. Marquette's success in Illinois is hoped to provide momentum going into MACRA next weekend. Overall, it was a great start to what will be an exciting spring season!
