The UFV rowing program had a solid showing at the Canadian University Rowing Championships, hosted by UBC at Burnaby Lake last week.

The Cascades’ women’s and men’s squads both finished in the top 10 out of 20 teams. The women placed eighth overall, moving up two spots from 2011, while the men were ninth, an improvement of one spot.

The men’s two crew of Mat Morrison and Scott Micona came in seeded seventh, but won their race in dominant fashion, 10 seconds ahead of Geulph University. The lightweight men’s duo of Antony Dayton and Emmett Campbell came ninth.

Jocelyn Woelke and Debra Neufeld came in eighth in the women’s pairs, a remarkable finish considering that they came in seeded 10th and Woelke was a last-minute sub for the injured Genevieve Santos.

“We made UFV history this weekend, in some key races,” commented UFV rowing coach Liz Chisholm.
