Minnesota First Varsity Eight
The Gophers' first varsity eight claimed the year's final Boat of the Week distinction after cruising to a nearly 30-second win against Kansas over the weekend. Team members from the first varsity eight include coxswain Linnea Trandem, Cassie Drozynski, Erika Berg, Tracy Merth, Lucy Mulvey, Jenna Schuder, Sarah Krueger, Sarah Graham and Rebekah Brzozowski. The eight raced out to a 30-second lead midway through the 2,000-meter course and finished with a time of 6:41.8. The Gophers have won back-to-back races after winning the Lake Natoma Invite last weekend.
