Wingnuts and Washers

The University at Buffalo student paper published a nice story that was linked on row2k about a coxswain/bowman sister team in the Buffalo lightweight eight.

In a pre Crew Classic press release from SDSU, the Aztecs' third place finish in last year's lightweight eight event is noted. This year, unfortunately, SDSU is not entering a lightweight eight. They may not have enough lightweight rowers or, more likely, they've decided they want to put everyone in heavyweight races. Interestingly enough, SDSU received votes in the latest coaches' lightweight eight poll (more on that in a bit). I would say that a San Diego program that's not racing a lightweight boat in the Crew Classic is not racing a lightweight boat, period.
