The Laker Navy had a Successful Scrimmage and Looks Forward to the Season Ahead – The San Diego Crew ClassicSunday, March 25th, 2012
The MACRA Preview Regatta Scrimmage with Michigan State Men’s Rowing Club on the Grand River was held Saturday March 25th, 2012 in Riverside Park, Grand Rapids, MI. The races gave the Lakers an early opportunity to be competitive and get dialed in for the season ahead. Each Grand Valley Boat that Finished at the Radisson Hotel, south of the Ann Street Bridge did well, beating Michigan State but also getting in good races. Both Programs got good racing in and were given great conditions with flat water, a comfortable temperature, many spectators, and all around beautiful weather for rowing.
The season ahead is exciting for the Laker Navy, as the Men’s and Women’s Varsity 8+ is heading to the San Diego Crew Classic, that will be held on March 29th – April 2nd in San Diego, CA. The Laker Navy is excited that our top 8+ Men and Women will be able to compete with crews in the west coast. It is a chance to go fast, compete at a high level, and represent Grand Valley, and the Laker Navy is excited to do so.
The rest of the Laker Navy will be at the Belleville Regatta, which will be held on March 31st on Ford Lake in Belleville, Mi. The Entire Laker Navy is excited for their first big races of the season and are looking forward to the full season ahead. After these races, the Laker Navy will be looking forward to the 17th Annual Lubbers Cup Regatta, which will be held on April 14th in Spring Lake, MI. Keep pulling for the Laker Navy and check back here often to see upcoming events and results.
