Action was hot at Head of the Rideau:
Trent rowing team brings home eight "firsts"

Posted: September 30, 2002

Trent University's rowing team brought home eight first-place standings and six second-place standings from this past weekend's Head of the Rideau regatta in Ottawa.

Trent teams were entered into 23 events on Sunday, September 29, and winning Trent crews included the women's lightweight eight, women's lightweight four, women's novice eight, men's lightweight four, men's novice eight, men's single, women's single (Peterborough Rowing Club) and men's master double (Peterborough Rowing Club). In second place were the women's single, women's double, men's heavy double, men's heavy four, men's lighweight double and men's lightweight single.

"This is one of the largest rowing programmes Trent has had in many years, with over 90 athletes competing at both the varsity and novice levels," says Athletics Director Bill Byrick.

Trent's head rowing coach, Jack Lapum, was happy with the weekend's events and says, "The Head of the Rideau is a first chance for novice rowers to experience university competition; we're off to a good start."

Trent's rowing team is now gearing up for this coming weekend's Head of the Trent races and events.
