"In the morning races against Iowa, we had some well executed skill and had some growth edges reveal themselves," said head coach Josh Adam. "The 1V8 struggled a little executing what we had been working on in practice and didn't ever find a rhythm. However, the women knew they could do better and were ready to make the necessary adjustments. The 2V8 had a really great race where they were down early and had to work their way back into contention. It was great to watch the result. The 1V4 had a really long, smooth rhythm in their race that allowed everyone to really execute some good power per stroke for the entire 2,000 meters.
