No. 1 Texas won all four races against No. 10 Virginia in Monday morning rowing action at Rivanna Reservoir in Earlysville.

The Longhorns defeated the Cavaliers in the Varsity Four (7:12.7-7:22.7), Second Varsity Four (7:18.6-7:38.4), Second Varsity Eight (6:28.9-6:37.9) and Varsity Eight (6:17.1-6:24.7).

“We ran into a buzzsaw today with Texas,” Virginia head coach Kevin Sauer said. “They were more than ready for us after having a tough Saturday at Princeton. Texas is well coached with strong rowers, and they took it to us. We will respond in every way possible going forward.”

The Cavaliers welcome North Carolina, Tennessee and Navy at the UVA Invite on Saturday at Rivanna Reservoir.
