Clemson Rowing To Compete In Carolina Classic

Sept. 27, 2001

Clemson, SC – The Tiger rowing team will travel to Durham, North Carolina, to compete in the Carolina Cup Saturday on Lake Michie. Clemson, Duke, and North Carolina will compete on the 4500 meter course. “You can practice for a race, but until you participate in a race you don’t gain the experiences to draw from,” said head coach Susie Lueck. “So we are looking to get multiple races in a day in a competitive environment.”Carolina Cup Schedule
