MACRA Championships

Marquette Crew braved tough conditions to race at April 25th's MACRA Championships in Ypsilanti, Michigan. 15 mile-per-hour headwinds and medium-heavy chop did not keep our squads from excelling on the water. All boats performed well in the tough conditions. Our Varsity Women's 8+ advanced from heats to the Grand Final and placed 7th out of 14. The Novice Women's 8+ advanced as well, capturing silver medals with their 2nd-place finish nearly 20 seconds ahead of the 3rd place boat. The Women's Novice 4+ also impressed with their 3rd-place finish in the Grand Final. These results are especially exciting given the steep level of competition this weekend. 22 teams entered, some of which were D1, D2 and D3 programs. 

Looking forward, these results are very encouraging for what will be the culmination of each Marquette rower's hard work this semester-- the Dad Vail Regatta in Philadelphia. The taste of success from MACRA is sure to motivate our squads as they prepare for the next 10 days.
