rowingNo. 4 Virginia concluded a successful weekend at the B1G Invite by winning three races Sunday on Harsha Lake in Bethel, Ohio.

UVA claimed wins in the Varsity Eight, Second Varsity Eight and Third Varsity Eight, and totaled nine wins in the two-day event. The Cavaliers’ V8 and 2V8 each finished the weekend at 3-0.

“I am really proud of our team,” Virginia head coach Kevin Sauer said. “We were pushed very hard over these three races by Ohio State, Rutgers and Michigan, especially Saturday afternoon in tough conditions. Our team responded with composure, resilience and toughness. Many thanks to Coach Justin Price and Rutgers for organizing and hosting.”

On Sunday, UVA out-raced No. 7 Michigan in the Varsity Eight (6:25.271-6:26.502) in a highly-contest battle and topped the Wolverines in the Second Varsity Eight (6:35.664-6:39.326). UVA’s Third Varsity Eight added a win over No. 14 Wisconsin (6:34.495-6:40.389).

Michigan edged the Cavaliers in the Varsity Four (7:16.930-7:18.744) and Second Varsity Four (6:55.320-6:58.543).
