COLUMBUS, Ohio – The third-ranked Ohio State women’s rowing team won seven races against Big Ten rivals Michigan and Michigan State Saturday morning at the Big Ten Double Dual on Lake Carnegie in Princeton, N.J.

Ohio State finished the first session of the day 3-2 in races against the 10th-ranked Wolverines. After dropping the novice race, the Second Varsity Four continued its fast start to the season with a five-second win over UM.

The next two races – the First Varsity Four and Second Varsity Eight – went down to the wire, with OSU edging the Maize and Blue in the 1V4 (7:42.9-7:44.7) and Michigan pulling out a win in the 2V8 (6:49.6-6:52.0).

OSU continued its recent run of success against Michigan in the First Varsity Eight race, defeating the Wolverines by eight seconds. The reigning Big Ten Boat of the Week crossed the finish line in a time of 6:34.8.

Rain and gusting wind arrived for the second session between the Buckeyes and Spartans. After dropping the Novice Eight race, the Scarlet and Gray reeled off four consecutive open-water victories against the Green and White to close the regatta. The 1V8 wrapped the day with a 23-second win over the Spartans to move to 5-1 in races on the season.
