We had some great racing this weekend in both venues at Chattanooga for the Head of the Hooch and in Ypsilanti for the Head of the Huron. This is the first time in years that our team has traveled to compete at the Hooch, which is the second largest regatta in the country. A big congratulations goes out to the Varsity Men's lightweight squad who took home a big win with a first place. The Varsity Men's Open 8+ also did very well placing second among their competitors.
We also would like to extend a congratulations to all the novice who competed for the first time this weekend. Fall racing is just a little taste of what is yet to come in the spring. We hope everyone had a great race weekend and a big thank you goes out to the Parent's Club for traveling to both venues to support our team!

Our Varsity teams had a very successful day of racing at the Milwaukee River Challenge this weekend in Wisconsin. Most notably being the Women's Varsity 8+, who came home with a first place, a new trophy for the Purdue Crew, and some very nice hardware. This marks the first time in years that the women's varsity 8 has achieved such a feat, and overcame the previous champions, scholarship athletes from the University of Wisconsin! This win also marks the end of a 9 year winning streak for the Wisconsin Badgers. Congratulations Women's Varsity 8+ champions!
The Men's Varsity 4+ also came home with a gold this weekend leaving many worthy opponents in their wake. Congratulations to all that competed this weekend. We had a great first weekend of racing and look forward to The Head of the Rock coming soon!
