Dr. Thomas B. Robinson Christening
This past week Purdue Crew welcomed a new shell to our fleet. The "Dr. Thomas B. Robinson" was christened on October 9 by Dr. Robinson and his wife Nancy. Dr. Robinson was the Vice President of Student Affairs from 1998 through 2011 and a very good friend of the Purdue Crew. During his career he was the leading university staff guiding the construction of our new boathouse. We're proud to race and store the Robinson in the boathouse he helped create.
Racing at Rockford
Another weekend, another successful regatta. Purdue Crew traveled to Rockford, Illinois this past weekend for the Head of the Rock. With sunny and warm weather and even better water, Purdue Crew had strong showings across the board. Arriving on Saturday for some practice rows, everybody was looking forward to the food and bonfire the Hatch family provides the night before. Once again, Purdue swept the medals for the Mixed 8s. For the Varsity Men, it was an exciting day with the Lightweights taking second and the Heavyweights only 2 seconds behind in third. The Varsity Women's first eight finished seventh behind Minnesota and a very strong Wisconsin program. Additionally, the Varsity Women's four was the fastest club four of the day. All boats did exceptionally well. With these strong results in mind, these athletes are gearing up to take on the Head of the Eagle next weekend.
