Rowing Opens Spring Season Saturday

March 4, 2005

Clemson rowing will open its spring season on Lake Hartwell with a dual regatta versus Eastern Michigan University. The first of five races is set to get underway at 9:00 AM on Saturday. The Tigers and Eagles will compete in the Varsity 8+, Novice 8+, Second Varsity 8+, and Varsity 4+ events.

Clemson and Eastern Michigan last met on the water during the spring of 2004 in a regatta held on Lake Belleville in Ann Arbor, MI. In that event, which also included Michigan and Notre Dame, the Tigers defeated Eastern Michigan in each of the four races held on March 27. Clemson claimed second-place finishes in the Second Varsity 8+ and Novice 8+ races during that competition.

Saturday’s races will also be the first of the spring season for Eastern Michigan.
