DURHAM, N.C. – After a solid showing last weekend at the Clemson Invitational, the No. 19 Duke rowing team is back in action Saturday in Columbus, Ohio, to take on No. 4 Ohio State and No. 15 Michigan State.
Duke will send its V8, 2V8, 3V8, V4 and 2V4 to the event. The Blue Devils will race all five boats against two ranked opponents with the first event beginning with the 3V8 at 9:10 a.m. In addition to facing off against Ohio State and Michigan State, the V8 and 2V8 boats will take on San Diego during the morning session.
So far this season, Duke swept its way through the Carolina Cup en route to the second-consecutive title and most recently notched a seventh-place team finish at the Clemson Invitational against eight nationally-ranked crews.
The Blue Devils qualified the V8, 3V8, V4 and 2V4 for the A Finals and the 2V8 in the B Final as the unranked squad came away besting No. 18 Syracuse and No. 20 Oklahoma in the final team standings.
Following this weekend in Ohio, the Blue Devils will be back in action Saturday, April 28 at the Dale England Cup in Bloomington, Ind.
