@CanesRowing Takes Second in San Diego
SAN DIEGO — The University of Miami rowing team closed out its trip to San Diego with a second place finish in its final race.
The Hurricane 1V8+ placed second in the Women’s Collegiate Invitational Petite race on Sunday, finishing behind Gonzaga. Miami, who completed the 2000m course in 6:59.95, crossed the finish line on Mission Bay ahead of Grand Valley and Texas.
Miami’s 2V8+ finished sixth in its final race at the San Diego Crew Classic. The Canes’ time of 6:58.34 put them behind Gonzaga, Iowa, KSU, USD and Texas.
“Both of our boats were able to gain valuable racing experience in San Diego,” Miami head coach Dave Sanderson said. “We are looking to build on this weekend’s racing as we continue our development in preparation for our next event at Clemson.”
The Hurricanes will train for two weeks before they travel to Clemson, S.C., for the Tiger Invitational on April 19-20.
