The Michigan Men's Rowing team just won their 6th straight ACRA National Championship. They also won the premier event, the Men's Varsity 8, for the first time in a few years.
For those of you who do not know much or anything about rowing, Michigan's men's team used to be able to compete as a club program at the IRA regatta, which is the national championship for varsity programs. Six years ago, the IRA decided not to let club teams compete because Michigan, UVA and few other clubs were often finishing in the top 10. The elite club programs began their own national championship 6 years ago, and Michigan has won every single championship since the regatta's inception. Michigan's men have also placed one rower on each of the last three Olympic teams.
