Spartan Rowing wraps up day one of racing in New Jersey
East Lansing, Michigan- Michigan State rowing competed in its regular season opener and the team’s first two-man race in New Jersey this weekend, taking on Harvard-Radcliffe and Yale Saturday morning at the Cooper River at Cherry Hill.
The Spartans fielded three boats in the Ivy/Big Ten Double Dual on Saturday, racing the First Varsity Eight, Second Varsity Eight and Varsity Four crews in the regatta.
The team saw eight rowers make their debuts for the Greens and Whites, a mix of freshmen and those who didn’t feature in the abridged 2021 season. While the head-to-head results reflected losses for MSU, Crews showed strong potential against two teams in the CRCA rankings, with Harvard receiving votes and Yale sitting at No. 4 among Division I teams .
Michigan State is back in action tomorrow at the Doc Hosea Invite hosted by Bucknell, racing again at the Cooper River. Results will be published on msuspartans.com and regattaworks.com
