March 18, 2018

The University of Notre Dame rowing team completed its first weekend of competition in 2018 with three victories in six races on day two of the Cardinal Invite in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, on Sunday, March 18, 2018.

The morning started with a competitive Varsity Eight race featuring three ACC teams. The Irish finised just four seconds behind Minnesota, two seconds behind Louisville and ahead of Miami.

The Third Varsity Eight earned the first win of the day for Notre Dame, edging Minnesota by less than a second in the third race of the morning. The Second Varsity Four and Third Varsity Four then capped the day with wins in the fifth and sixth races of the morning.
