(ISN) – CLEMSON, S.C. — With the conditions near perfect on Saturday, the Indiana rowing team had some positive results at the Clemson Invitational against some of the top crews in the country.

In the morning session, the First Varsity 8 finished third in their race, trailing No. 1 Ohio State by just six seconds and No. 4 Virginia by less than two seconds. Among the teams that they defeated were No. 15 Harvard, No. 16 UCLA and a Syracuse crew that was receiving votes in the Top 25 this week.

Then in the afternoon, the 1V8 won its race by more than four seconds against six other programs.

“Our crews raced hard today and I am proud of their efforts,” Indiana head coach Steve Peterson said. “In the varsity 8, we need to work on being stronger in the first half of the race, but they keep proving they can row with anyone the second half. There are some small things we can work on over the next few weeks that should help us find a little more speed before Big Tens.”

The Second Varsity 8 finished fifth in their morning race, trailing Virginia, Ohio State, Harvard and UCLA. But after making adjustments prior to the afternoon, the Hoosiers finished third behind Harvard and Oregon State.

Similar results awaited the Varsity 4, Second Varsity and Novice 8 on their day.

The Varsity 4 came in with a time of 7:47.7 in the morning to finish sixth in their heat before coming back later in the day to register a time of 7:29.8 and finish second to Harvard in their heat, defeating Oregon State, Oklahoma, Clemson, Michigan State and Duke.

Second Varsity 4 improved their time by 15 seconds from the morning race to the afternoon race while the Novice 8 finished fifth in their morning heat before finishing third in their afternoon heat.

The final session of the weekend gets started at 7:30 a.m. on Sunday in Clemson, South Carolina.
