Tigers Win 2V8+ Race on First Day of Sunshine State Invitational

SARASOTA, Fla. — Clemson fared well on the opening day of the Sunshine State Invitational, winning the 2V8+ race and crossing the finish line as the runner-up in the other four races on Friday. On a warm, sunny, fairly windy late afternoon at Nathan Benderson Park, the Tigers competed against UCF, Jacksonville, Kansas, K-State, Miami and Stetson on the first of two days of racing.

Winning the 2V8+ event with a time of 7:25.90, Clemson finished over five seconds ahead of the second-place Jayhawks. The first-place 2V8+ boat, which was coxed by Katie Herbolsheimer, highlighted an overall solid evening of rowing for Clemson. The Tigers claimed second in the 1V8+, 1V4+, 2V4+ and 3V8+ races, with Central Florida earning victories in those events.

The seven-team regatta will pick back up tomorrow morning. The Tigers will once again compete in the five aforementioned races. Racing will begin at 8 a.m. on Saturday, April 3, and will conclude with the final race at 9 a.m. Live results can be found here.
