Purdue Crew takes home two brand new ergs from their conquests at the Chicago Indoor Rowing Championships. This indoor rowing championship saw many victories across the board for our team. Purdue Crew took CIRCs by storm and left everyone in the dust. We hope that next year we will see even more competitors from our team to represent Purdue in this erg race.
Crew members Bobby Jones, Ryan Roby, Fred Jorgenson, Drew Stover, Mike Frick, and Mike Reichert with Purdue Crew's ergs won at CIRC

Purdue Crew had a very successful weekend at the Tippecanoe Mall fundraising for Lafayette Urban Ministries at our annual Row-a-thon. In total so far, we have raised a little over $20,000 for this very worthy cause and the donations keep coming in. Congratulations Purdue Crew!

Lots of fun and a nice mental break from winter training came today on the last day of January. It's also the day before our annual Row-a-thon, so our women's team decided to take a shift in terms of practice and instead of doing a traditional workout, that they'd play a game of flag football out in the beautiful snow.
Just a reminder, that Row-a-thon does begin tomorrow. Shifts are as follows.
First Shift: 9am - 12 noon
Second Shift: Noon - 3pm
Third Shift: 3 - 6pm
Fourth Shift: 6 - 9pm
Happy Rowing, and good luck to all those Marathoners, erging down those 42,195 meters. For those not rowing marathons, your magic number for the Row-a-thon is 32,500 meters. Have fun!

It is the end of January and winter training is still well underway. Tomorrow marks the beginning of two erg race championships that our teams take part in. The Indianapolis Erg Sprints start tomorrow and Chicago Indoor Rowing Championships are coming soon next month. Pre registration for Indy has closed but if you still want to compete you can register the same day at the event. Check out IRC's website for more details.

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!
