The team got up early this Sunday to make the trip out to Rockford, IL. The morning got off to a great start with the Men's Pair taking first in their event. Later in the day the Irish also put out boats in the Men's Open 4+, the Men's Collegiate 4+, and the Men's Collegiate Novice 8+ events. Of those boats, the Notre Dame Men's Open 4+ also took first in their event and the 1st Novice 8+ came back with a bronze medal.
The team launched its doubles later in the afternoon. Two of the three boats came back with medals from the Men's Open 2x event. The Irish raced hard and came back with a silver and a bronze.
The day ended with the Men's Collegiate 8+ and Men's Open 8+ events. The 1st Varsity 8+ took third in its event just a second behind Purdue. The 1st Novice 8+ also brought home another bronze medal in the Open 8+ race.
Special thanks to the Notre Dame Club of Rockford and all the friends and family of Notre Dame Rowing that came out to support!
