INDIANA FIRST VARSITY EIGHT
Defeated: Clemson, Purdue, Buffalo and Marist at Clemson, S.C.
Notes: Indiana raced to victory in its first regatta of the spring season as the Hoosiers claimed the event crown at the Solid Orange Clemson Challenge. The V8+ boat opened a four-seat lead at the 500-meter mark and sprinted to the first-place finish (6:53.00) by almost 10 seconds over second-place Clemson, 7:02.3. Members of Indiana's winning crew were Betsy Hibbard as coxswain, Amanda Walker at stroke, Lauren Anderson, Kelly Schuiling, Ashley Airis, Laura Lazaridis, Stacey Young, Rozzie McHenry and Dana Powell at bow.
