Come cheer on the USN Rowing Club on Saturday, October 12 on the Cumberland River from Riverfront Park. USN rowers will compete with the Nashville Rowing Club against crews from across the country. Local crews include Nashville Rowing Club, Vanderbilt University, Harpeth Hall, and Montgomery Bell Academy. Look for some crazy fast crews from the University of Michigan, University of Louisville, and Purdue University.
The USN Rowing Club is composed of Ethan Herrell ’21, Jon Lippolis '21, Margaret Griffin ’25, Lucy Cramer '24, and Leah Joseph '24.
Middle School rowers will race at noon, and high school crews will race throughout the day.
