The men’s crew team returned to the water in its first race of the season with a scrimmage against its archrival the Rochester Institute ofTechnology.

In the teams previous meetings, dating back to last spring, RIT held the edge in wins against UR.

UR sought revenge in the weekends race and found success in defeating both of RIT’s varsity eight-man boats by 18 seconds and 52 seconds,respectively.

RIT jumped out ahead at the start, but UR was able to come together as a unit to pass both boats with an impressive lead all the way to the finish line.

Freshman David Herman successfully fought for a seat in the varsity-eight and competed in his first race with the boat in the win over RIT.

“This was the only race on our home course this spring, so it was great to win at home,” said junior Galen Mittermann.

The men’s novice-four also put in a competitive performance, in which they crossed the finish line only 3 minutes and 9 seconds behind RIT’s two novice boats.

RIT again jumped out ahead at the start. UR was able to close the gap, but could not take over the lead.

Unfortunately, the women did not participate in this scrimmage due to an accident that injured several of the RIT’s rowers.

The day was not wasted, however, with the varsity-eight and novice-eight rowing against each other.

The men’s and women’s team will head to the waters this weekend. They will travel to Ithaca to race against Marist College and the University of Michigan.
