Quotes
“Every boat had some great moments today. Two big wins in 2V8 really show our depth and team strength. It was exciting to see how strong both Michigan and Ohio State were in the team events. It was thrilling to see us dominate the 3V8 races. We were able to perform well despite the extremely cold temperatures and the rain delay. We faced strong headwinds at the end of the day and still raced hard. This is not the end of our season, but this certainly puts us on track. This weekend proved we can hang with some very strong teams. But we still have much work to do.” – Head coach Megan Cooke Carcagno
