When the official season ended last spring many of the Ohio State rowers did not stop to rest. The Buckeyes continued training throughout the summer at many training camps and on their home rivers. Several Buckeyes also made an impact on the international level.
Sophomore Claire-Louise Bode raced in the 2011 Under-23 World Championships July 20-24 in Amsterdam. Bode and her partner Kate Christowitz advanced to the A final and finished with a fifth-place medal.
Freshmen Nadine Seehaus and Ilse Paulis both competed at the 2011 World Rowing Junior Championships Aug. 3-7 at Dorney Lake in Eton, Great Britain. Seehaus completed the competition with a gold medal while Paulis earned the silver medal.
The Buckeyes had an impressive performance in their 2012 home opener March 24, winning all six races against Notre Dame March 24 on the Scioto River at Griggs Reservoir. To view a complete recap CLICK HERE.
