Clemson Repeats as 2V8+ Champion in Sunshine State Invitational

SARASOTA, Fla. — After winning the 2V8+ race in the opening session of the Sunshine State Invitational, Clemson repeated as the 2V8+ champion on Saturday. The Tigers closed out the two-day regatta by winning the 2V8+ event and clocking in as the runner-up in the 1V8+, 1V4+, 2V4+ and 3V8+ events, mirroring their results from Friday.

On a cool, clear, fairly gusty morning at Nathan Benderson Park, the Tigers rowed against UCF, Jacksonville, Kansas, K-State, Miami and Stetson. The 2V8+ boat, which featured Katie Herbolsheimer as the coxswain, led the way for Clemson, claiming gold in its race with a time of 7:54.54, nearly eight seconds faster than second-place Kansas. The other four races were all won by UCF.

The Tigers will return to the water on Saturday, April 17, for the Clemson Invitational. The home regatta in Clemson, S.C., will be hosted by the Tigers at their Lake Hartwell boathouse. Racing will begin at 10 a.m. and conclude approximately an hour later.
