Purdue Day of Giving 2017 - Thank you!
Thank you to all our supporters who had donated to Purdue Crew during this year's Day of Giving! This year an outstanding $5,130 was donated to the team from our generous supporters. The money raised goes a long way to providing an excellent experience to our student athletes. We are forever grateful.
Spring Season Off to a Start
Purdue Crew enjoyed a productive week in Clemson, SC to start of the spring season strong. Each squad, both novice and varsity left Clemson in mid March with faster boats and stronger rowers. Thank you Purdue Alumni of South Carolina for graciously providing a refreshing ice-cream treat during the middle of our training!
A week after returning from spring break the team kicked off our string of regattas with the Marietta vs. Purdue Dual at Eagle Creek in Indianapolis. Notre Dame and Cincinnati raced as well. All squads showed some promising performances on the water that weekend.
Just four days after two varsity men's eights and a varsity women's eight along with a women's four left for San Diego, CA for the Crew Classic on Mission Bay. Not only did the squad enjoy weather far warmer and sunnier than that of Indiana's, they also put down some great racing on the salty waters. The varsity women's eight finished 5th in their grand final as well as the women's four in their final. On the men's side the varsity eight closed the weekend out with 4th in the petite final ahead of UCLA and Vanderbilt. While the lightweight 8 finished 3rd in their grand final just seconds behind a fast MIT. We want to thank the Purdue Alumni of San Diego for their support and hospitality on the west coast during our visit!
