IU qualifies for fifth-straight NCAA Championship berth


On Tuesday night, the Indiana rowing team punched its ticket to the NCAA Rowing Championships with an at-large bid.

The Hoosiers will be represented at the event for the fifth straight year. This season, the team will travel to Sarasota, Florida, for the festivities. 

IU heads into the event coming off an underwhelming performance at the Big Ten Championships in Indianapolis, where it placed fifth out of eight teams. At the NCAA Championships, the Hoosiers are seeded 14th out of 22 teams.

IU's 1V4 is seeded 11th for their race, while the 1V8 and 2V8 are both seeded 14th. 

Joining the Hoosiers out of the Big Ten in Florida will be Iowa, Michigan, Ohio State and Wisconsin. These five schools match last year's conference record for most teams at the NCAA Rowing Championships.

With the championship regatta taking place May 25-27, the team will have more than a week to prepare.
