As with any sport, the first major competition of the year is an exciting time, and with coach Larry Davis and the University of Alabama’s rowing team, it’s no different.
Saturday morning marked a first and a last for the Alabama Rowing team. The team participated in a head-style race against the University of Alabama at Huntsville, the first fall head race the Crimson Tide has ever hosted. It also marked the last event ever hosted out of the team’s old boathouse, as the team will relocate to its new facilities at Manderson Landing in the upcoming weeks.
Alabama’s rowing team has a new boathouse, fleet and conference for the 2014-2015 season. The young program is looking to build on the success of last season, with high goals for this season.
