On September 24, 2015, Samford Crew rose early to drive 2.5 hours down to Lake Hardy just a few miles outside of Auburn University. The teams quickly bonded over the fun times and unique lifestyle of being a part of a club rowing team.
We raced varsity women, novice women, and novice men between the two crews. Additionally, we had the coxswains row in a “cox race” to give our beloved leaders the opportunity to test their rowing skills.
All in all, the afternoon was filled with plentiful rowing and laughter. Everyone raced hard, and both crews were able to practice for upcoming regattas in a race-like setting. After both crews had lunch together, Samford Crew headed for home. We are thankful for our new friendship with Auburn Crew and thankful for their graciousness in hosting us!
