The Ann Arbor Pioneer Crew team placed first among U.S. schools entered and sixth overall during the prestigious Canadian Secondary Schools Rowing Association Regatta in Ontario, according to an online report on Mlive.com by reporter David Darnton. The event took place in St. Catharines, Ontario over the weekend, where students competed in three days of racing.
A total of 134 teams from Canada and the U.S. competed in the 65th annual event, held at the Royal Canadian Henley Course. When racing was over Sunday, Pioneer had set a new club record by finishing sixth overall and first among the US schools entered.
Pioneer entered 12 boats in Friday’s preliminary heats; nine of them made it to the semi-finals on Saturday, and six of them qualified as “Sunday boats,” a term used to describe the six boats that survive those first two days of racing to make it into Sunday’s finals.
