The squad traveled down to Cincinnati, Ohio early on Saturday morning for the last race before ACRAs in late May. After a windy and cold practice Saturday afternoon and fueling up with some amazing BBQ for dinner, the team was ready to take on the best teams in the midwest the following day.
For the first time in several decades, the team raced six 8+s this late in April, the 1V, 2V, 3V, 4V, 1N, and 2N. Sunday was a great show of the depth this team has this year as nearly all boats ended up on the podium! The 2V, 3V, and 1N took silver, while the 4V took bronze in the 3V category. The 2N, riding high off their win at SIRAs last week, pulled a win out once again and took gold in their category, besting Michigan by half a deck. The 1V fought hard to a respectable 4th place finish.
The team now travels back to South Bend to prepare for the biggest race of the year, ACRAs, in a month! R’Irish!
