Crew Retains Beltline Belt vs Forest Hills Central (59-9)

Game Date
Oct 10, 2020
Score
PIONEERS: 59
FOREST HILLS CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL: 9

The second annual showdown on the Grand River between East and Forest Hills Central is a wrap.  The Pioneers captured 12 of 14 races to keep the Beltline Belt in the rafters of the EGR Crew Boathouse for at least another year.  Final team points were EGR 59, FHC 9.  

The 1500m head to head race could not have had better weather.   What started out as an overcast, windy morning broke to 70 degrees and sunny.  Catch the recorded finish line action at http://bit.ly/beltlive.

After a heartbreaking 2 meter loss in the men's varsity single, EGR went on a 6 event winning streak, capturing the Women's Novice 4+, Men's Novice 8+, Men's Varsity 2x, Women's Varsity 1x, Women's Varsity 4+, and Men's Varsity 4x.  After a short lunch break, FHC took the mixed 8+, before EGR ran the table with victories in the Women's Varsity 4x, Women's Varsity 2x, Men's Varsity 4+, Men's Novice 4+, Men's Varsity 8+, and Women's Varsity 8+.

We're very thankful for our gracious hosts at FHC and our videographer, Doug Jenkins.  Next week crew heads down to Fort Wayne to take on Culver Academy at the First Annual "Row the Mauma Jo!" regatta, hosted by the Glorious Gate Rowing Association.
