NOTRE DAME, Ind. – The University of Notre Dame rowing team begins its 2013 season this weekend at the Oak Ridge/Cardinal Invite in Oak Ridge, Tenn.
The Irish enjoyed a successful trip to the regatta last season on Melton Lake, winning 10 races during the two-day event. Notre Dame was victorious three times in the first and second varsity eight, twice in the third varsity eight, and once in the first varsity four and second varsity four in the 2012 Oak Ridge/Cardinal Invite.
Notre Dame is scheduled to launch a total of seven boats on Saturday’s first day of races. The Irish are set to square off with Duke and Kansas during the regatta’s morning session, and Virginia and Georgetown during the afternoon’s slate of heats.
The Notre Dame entries will wrap up the weekend Sunday with six races against Louisville and Miami (Fla.). The final day of competition is scheduled to begin at 10:24 a.m.
