Virginia Sweeps Five Races at Oak Ridge Cardinal Invitational
March 15, 2015
OAK RIDGE, Tenn.–The No. 2 Virginia rowing team swept five races on the final day of the Oak Ridge Cardinal Invitational Sunday morning (March 15) on Melton Hill Lake.
“We had great racing by all of our boats this weekend,” UVa head coach Kevin Sauer said. “I think we found out that if we keep pushing and improving each and every day that we can be very competitive this spring. Thanks to the University of Louisville for organizing and hosting a great regatta.”
The Cavaliers’ Varsity Eight (time of 5:54.253), Second Varsity Eight (6:02.583) and Third Varsity Eight (6:14.429) all defeated crews from No. 18 Louisville and Oklahoma. UVa had two entries in the First Varsity Four race and both finished ahead of the Cardinals and Sooners in times of 6:37.508 and 6:40.758. Virginia’s Third Varsity Four (6:42.800) took down Louisville and Oklahoma’s 2V4s.
Overall, the Cavaliers won 14 of 15 races in their first regatta of the spring season.
Up next, the Cavaliers compete in the Pac-12 Challenge March 28-29 in Redwood Shores, Calif.
