Nov. 8, 2006
In 2006, the Buckeyes produced one of the most winning seasons ever in Ohio State Rowing history, building upon the program’s strong foundation of success. After capturing the Big Ten title and crowned as Central Region championships, the team notched its highest point total ever at the NCAA Championships and placed third in the varsity four NCAA Grand Final. This accomplishment earned them the highest finish ever by any Ohio State boat in the national championship.
The Buckeyes are just the second team to hold more than one Big Ten rowing championship, sharing the honor with Michigan. Senior Ninett Kossowsky was chosen as Big Ten Rowing Athlete of the Year for 2006, marking the second time a Buckeye has earned the award in program history
Recognition was given to those who guided the Buckeyes through their admirable season as well. Head coach Andy Teitelbaum, along with Wendy Davis of Minnesota, was awarded the 2006 Big Ten co-coach of the year. Assistant rowing coach Robbie Tenenbaum was named the 2006 CRCA Central Region Assistant Coach of the Year, which was his second-consecutive year of being chosen.
