BOAT OF THE WEEK
OHIO STATE SECOND VARSITY EIGHT
Defeated: Tennessee and USC at Griggs Reservoir, Columbus, Ohio
Notes: Ohio State's Second Varsity Eight has been named Boat of the Week after knocking off Tennessee and USC and extending its winning streak to four dual victories last weekend. On the home waters of Griggs Reservior, Buckeyes Lavinia Tinelli, Andrea Dymalski, Patricia Goodeman, Zuzanna Trzcinska, Katie Poling, Briony Clare, Justine Mahler, Olga Grigorieva and Sarah Obee began the day by defeating USC as they finished the 2000-meter course in 6:31.30. The OSU 2V8 squad went on to win its second race during the afternoon, clocking in at 6:26.97, 5.40 seconds ahead of Tennesse. This is the second time this season that a 2V8 boat has earned weekly honors as Michigan State Spartans garnered the laurel on March 28.
