@CanesRowing Wins Five Races at UCF

ORLANDO, Fla. — The University of Miami rowing program won two races on the final day of the UCF Invitational.

One day after winning three races over two sessions, the Hurricanes picked up wins in both the 1V8+ and 2V8+ races to close out the weekend with five victories.

“The team raced with great poise and tenacity today to finish off a good weekend of competition,” Miami head coach Dave Sanderson said. “We must now focus on our final preparation for the ACC Championship. We will need that same poise and tenacity we showed in the racing today as we train through our exam period and continue to develop and improve.”

Miami’s 1V8+ won a tight race, beating out Old Dominion, Tulsa and UCF, with a time of 7:08.15. The 2V8+ won its final race of the weekend by 10 seconds, finishing ahead of Tulsa, UCF and Old Dominion to finish the weekend undefeated. The V4+ finished its final race of the UCF Invitational in 9:01.99.

In the Saturday morning session of racing, Miami’s 1V8+ finished just behind UCF in a head-to-head race. The Canes’ 2V8+ beat the Knights by almost 15 seconds, while the V4+ finished behind two UCF boats to round out the opening session of racing.

The Hurricanes returned to the water on Saturday afternoon and all three boats competed in their final race of the day. Both Miami’s 1V8+ and 2V8+ beat Old Dominion in head-to-head racing. Miami’s top boat turned in a time of 6:53.19, while the 2V8+ finished its second race in 7:09.46. The V4+ finished its second race of the day in 8:10.44.

The Canes competed in nine total races, battling against Tulsa, Old Dominion and the host, UCF. Miami raced a 1V8+, 2V8+ and V4+on Lake Pickett, home to the UCF rowing program.
