May 27, 2017

The University of Notre Dame rowing team continued competition at the 2017 NCAA Championship regatta at Lake Mercer in West Windsor, New Jersey, on Saturday, May 27th. The three Irish boats in the competition earned spots in the C Finals on Sunday and all have an opportunity to finish as high as 13th in the final standings.

The C Finals determine spots 13 through 18 in the final standings for each boat (Varsity Eight, Second Varsity Eight, Varsity Four).
