In early morning racing, Stetson's men beat the WVU crew in the fours and eights. The wind was down, there was no fog, and the visiting West Virginia crew-training here for spring break-was at the boathouse early. The men's fours went off first, with Stetson's lightweight men out in front by half a length at the 500 meter mark. Stetson went out by several lengths by the 1000 and never looked back.
In the eights, WVU was close at the start but dropped well behind as the Stetson men pulled out to a steady lead and opened the water distance between the two crews.
West Virginia brought 18 members of their team to Lake Beresford. It is the first time their blue and gold raced on our waters. Members of both teams had fun and congratulated one another at the boathouse afterward.
Joshua Mena said, "Anytime we can race it is a good thing." And this morning's wins were a VERY good thing as the Stetson men continue to train for the Florida State Championships in 2 weeks in Sarasota.
