OHIO STATE OF LATE
Ohio State won nine races last Saturday on the Cooper River in a double dual against Yale and Harvard to open up the 2018 season. The Second Varsity Eight, First Varsity Four, Second Varsity Four and Third Varsity Eight swept both of their races for opening day while the First Varsity Eight took down Harvard in its afternoon race.

IN THE RANKINGS
Ohio State, which returns 27 letterwinners from the 2017 squad that finished fifth at the 2017 NCAA Championships, is currently ranked sixth in the latest CRCA/US poll with 362 votes.

TEITELBAUM TO BE INDUCTED INTO HALL OF FAME IN MAY
Ohio State head coach Andy Teitelbaum has been selected to be inducted into the Women’s Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association Hall of Fame in May at the 2018 NCAA Championships. Serving as the only head coach in program history, Teitelbaum has overseen the rise to prominence by Buckeye rowing as a national contender year in and year out. He led Ohio State to three-straight NCAA Championships from 2013-15 to make Ohio State the first school in NCAA history to earn a three-peat. The national title was the first for a Big Ten rowing squad, and it was Ohio State’s first women’s national title in school history.
