CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The ninth-ranked Virginia rowing team travels to Columbus, Ohio, to race against No. 5 Michigan and No. 6 Ohio State Saturday (March 31) on the Scioto River at Griggs Reservoir. No. 18 Michigan State and Clemson will also compete in the one-day event.
The Cavaliers will send seven boats to Columbus and due to expected high winds in Columbus, racing will begin at 7:30 a.m. ET with the Varsity Eight.
Boats travel north to south on the Scioto. The finish line, where most spectators gather to watch the event, is located off of Riverside Dr., just north of Fishinger Road. Parking is available for fans.
UVA won 12 of 17 races at the Oak Ridge Cardinal Invitational and the Varsity Four captured ACC Crew of the Week honors on March 19. Members of the UVA Varsity Four were coxswain Colette Glass (Tampa, Florida), stroke Jamey Bulloch (Johannesburg, South Africa), three-seat Georgia Gray (Seattle, Washington), two-seat Martine van den Boomgaard (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) and bow Carrie Warner (East London, South Africa).
Live streaming for the event can be found on Facebook (OhioStateRowing), while real-time results will be provided through the Buckeyes’ Twitter account (@OhioState_WROW). Final results for the competition will be published on VirginiaSports.com.
