Crew battles best of Michigan in Traverse City

Game Date
Oct 20, 2019

Crew headed up to Traverse City for the Head of the North regatta to face off against Ann Arbor Skyline, Ann Arbor Pioneer, Northville, Traverse City Tritons, Lake Leelanau RC, and the Grand Rapids Rowing Association.  The Pioneers finished 4th in team points, just off Northville. 

Final standings were:

Skyline 372
Pioneer 300
Northville 165
EGR 162
Traverse City 45
Grand Rapids 28
Lake Leelanau 3

East got off to a hot start with medals in 7 of the first 8 events, highlighted by wins in the men's 1x and men's 2x.  After the Pioneers cooled off, the girls varsity 4+ got East back in the medals, before the boys and girls novice fours did their part, putting the Pioneers temporarily in the third position with two events to go.  With Northville winning the men's 8+, the EGR rowers had their work cutout.  The girls varsity 8+ had a Herculean effort against some massive schools and finished with the bronze. 

According to Coach Chorney, the team has seen remarkable growth over the last few seasons.  "Result like this against high caliber teams were a pipe dream a few seasons ago.  The herd work of the athletes is starting to show."

After going toe to toe with the best in Michigan, select EGR crews will race the best of the east coast next week at the Head of the Schuykill in Philadelphia.
