The Bison women’s rowing squad had a dual meet this weekend against Eastern Michigan and UConn on the Susquehanna River. The Bison won six out of their eight races, the Second Varsity Eight and Varsity Four both going 2-0 on the day. The Varsity Eight and Third Varsity Eight each went 1-1 in their races.

On Saturday, the Bison had the fastest four, finishing in 7:47 in both races and being only one of four crews to finish under eight minutes on the day. The Orange and Blue 3V8+ finished in 7:28.87, besting Eastern Michigan by 13 seconds. The Second Varsity Eight completed their first race in 6:54.08 to also beat Eastern Michigan.
