LAKE MONTICELLO, Va.—The No. 4 Virginia rowing team won seven races at the UVa Invitational Saturday afternoon (April 27) on Lake Monticello in its lone home regatta of the spring season.

“Today was pretty good and I was pleased with this morning, but we need to keep getting better,” UVa head coach Kevin Sauer said. “With ACCs only two weeks away and NCAAs three weeks after that, we need to keep pushing forward, because the end of the season is coming up fast.

“We’d like to thank the community of Lake Monticello for hosting this event and thank Duke, Michigan State and Wisconsin for coming all this way. It was a great day of rowing.”

The Cavaliers swept three races against Michigan State in the morning. In addition,  UVa defeated Duke in the Novice Eight and Second Varsity Four events.

In the afternoon, the UVa Varsity Eight took down No. 16 Wisconsin, but the Badgers were able to defeat two Cavalier crews in the Varsity Four race. In the Second Varsity Eight event, Virginia won a very tight race by only a second and a half.

The Cavaliers return to action May 12 for the ACC Championships in Clemson, S.C. UVa will be looking for its fourth consecutive conference crown and 13th title in 14 years.
