Clemson, SC – The Tiger rowing team will host the ACC Championships for the fourth consecutive spring. Boston College, Duke, Miami, North Carolina, and Virginia round out the six-team field. The events get underway Saturday, April 21 at 9:00 AM with the varsity 4+.

The varsity 8+ race is worth the most points toward a team’s total. The winner of that race will bring home 24 points, while the second varsity 8+ champion will accumulate 18. The varsity 4+ is worth 12 points, while the novice 8+ winner will earn six.

The Tigers come into the regatta with a strong resumé this season. Clemson’s varsity 8+ has been among the best in the conference and ranked as high as #12 nationally at one point this season. The Tigers’ second varsity 8+ and novice 8+ crews have also had tremendous success. Most recently, Clemson’s varsity 4+ won three races at the George Washington Invitational.

Virginia won the ACC crown last season and has won the championship every year it has been held. In fact, the Cavaliers have only been defeated twice in the history of the league regatta. Clemson’s varsity 4+ took first place in 2001 and the novice 8+ crew for the Tigers won in 2005.

The Cavaliers are once again the top seed in each of the four races. Clemson is the #2 seed and Duke the #3 seed in each of the races as well.
