2017 Speakmon Regatta

Host:   Greater Columbus Rowing Association
Date:   October 29, 2017
Distance:   2.4 miles downstream
Conditions:   Cold and windy.

Click here for full results from the regatta (pdf). There was a suspected timing issue given the winning time listed for Cleveland State in the women's novice 4+ (nearly as fast as the winner of the Men's Open 8+). Results are listed as official, however.

BREAKING NEWS (11/4/2017): The organizers of the Speakmon Regatta just reached out to the coaches of crews racing in the women's Novice 4+ event (our women's “3rd place” finish, remember?) to inform them that the wonky timing results have been reviewed and revised. The CWRU Novice Women's 4+ will be receiving their Silver, 2nd place medals shortly! Well done, Spartans! On to Spring and even greater success.

CWRU only sent a couple novice boats to the race since the Varsity raced at the Muskie Chase in Marietta, Ohio the day before.
