CHERRY HILL, New Jersey – The Oregon State men’s open-four and freshman eight crews raced this morning at the IRA Championships as the open-four placed third in today’s semi-finals, beating out four other teams to advance to the Grand Finals on Saturday.

The open-four crew finished the course in a time of 6:34.038, just under seven second behind second-place California.

 

The freshman eight crew placed sixth in their race with a time of 6:07.746 and will race in the Petite Final on Saturday.
