Rowers strong in Boston

Minnesota’s rowing team qualified its Varsity 8+ and Varsity 4+ boats for next year’s Head of the Charles Regatta in Boston, Mass., after a strong showing over the weekend.

The Varsity 4+ boat finished 10th out of 31 boats in the Championship Fours race. The Varsity 8+ boat was disqualified due to a logistical error. The boating list was different from who actually competed in the race.

Coach Wendy Davis is trying to get the disqualification lifted and allow a third place finish to stand.
