The Bulldogs will compete against fellow Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference members, the host Griffins and Robert Morris as well as Rochester Institute of Technology. “We’re very excited to see conference competition since we haven’t raced any conference teams since spring break training,” said head coach Charlie DiSilvestro. “It will be good to see how we stack up with two really good conference teams. With our poor water conditions, back home we haven’t been able to row our four lineup, so they need to get a feel of that boat. We will have two good practices to get some water time. The other two boats need to continue to feel good about coming together as a boat.”center_img Drake will look to build off its success from last weekend when it won four out of five races at the Illinois Collegiate Rowing Invitational in Farmer City, Ill. and claimed the women’s overall points title.
