A Beautifal Fall Day of Rowing on Cayuga Lake

The Men’s Crew, Women’s Crew and the Women’s Sculling teams are all excited to be using the new Robert B. Tallman Rowing Center.  It has also been great to be back on the inlet full time.  Tthe Hydrilla eradication plan was put into place this summer and is working!!! We have had many lake rows this fall and are glad to be able to pick and choose when we head out to row.  The men  rowed out to crowbar the day this picture was taken of the women’s squad.  The Novices are coming along.  Rowing by sixes and learning how to feather.  The Novice Men number about three eights and the Novice women are just over four eights.
