The University of Minnesota women's rowing team hosted its lone home event of the season Sunday morning vs. Wisconsin, with the Gophers' first varsity four picking up the only win of the day for the host squad in front of a sizeable crowd at Lake Phalen in St. Paul.
"Wisconsin was faster than us in most of the events, but we did win in the varsity four, which is great. We are really excited about that," head coach Wendy Davis said following the event. "Our second varsity eight was also as close as 1.3 seconds, but the rest of the races weren't quite as close as we would have liked."
"It was amazing," Stein said of the victory. "We trained all season for this, so it was great to put in the work and finally get results. We really fed off the support that was here today. It was really cool passing shore and hearing everybody scream."
