Husky Rowers Arrive In Sacramento For NCAAs
RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif. - The NCAA women's rowing championships is quite a scene. To go along with the 16 Division I teams are numerous schools from the D-II and D-III ranks, from as far-flung as Maine (Bates) and Miami (Barry).
These make for exciting times in the sport, and as coach Bob Ernst put it, "Everyone has new life right now." No matter what happened in the regular season, any team is capable of walking away from here with a National Championship.
The Huskies arrived in Sacramento this afternoon and then caravanned over to nearby Folsom to relax at the team hotel, which they share with Michigan. Everyone then scattered for lunch, with the coaches and administrators heading over to a nearby taqueria to gobble down tostadas.
There should be no complaints of boredom either, as the team hotel is located right next to a movie theater and a premium outlet shopping mall. After lunch, everyone headed over to the race course to rig the boats, put them on slings and then do a few practice laps on the course. The goal was to "shake off the cobwebs," according to Ernst, and loosen up after spending 90 minutes crammed into a seat on the flight down.
