Crew Battles Michigan's Best at Laddie Cup

Game Date
May 1, 2021

Crew took a long early morning drive down I-96 to battle Orchard Lake St. Mary's, Ann Arbor Pioneer, Ann Arbor Skyline, St. John's Jesuit, and Rockford.  This group of tough competition includes 3 of the Top 10 teams from the 2019 Midwest Scholastic Championships, and the defending (2019) Men's & Women's State Champions.  After a morning of high winds, and phenomenal competition, EGR rowed away with 4 First Place Finishes, 5 Second Place Finishes, and 6 Third Place Finishes across 18 events (More top-3 finishes than any other team).  

The day was highlighted with a very close race in the Men's Varsity 8+, where the top three teams were separated by less than 0.2 seconds.  EGR finished third behind Pioneer and Orchard Lake in that event.
