Once again, for the SEVENTH straight year, Michigan Men's Rowing has won the ACRA National Championship!
Michigan Rowing has been a Varsity Club since Bill Martin created the special designation in 2000. With the success of the Men's club lacrosse program causing it to jump to NCAA level (along with adding a women's program from scratch), I really wouldn't be surprised to see Men's Rowing become one of the next varsity sports here.
Due to Title IX, they'd need to add a Women's sport along with it. Since Triathlon and Sand Volleyball were named emerging sports and were given the green light to become official NCAA sports in a few years, I wouldn't be surprised to see one of those added to balance it out. Sand Volleyball is essentially an extension of Volleyball season.
Michigan Men bring home 7th straight National Team Championship Title! Overall team points trophy and small boats trophy! #rowblue— Michigan Rowing (@michiganrowing) May 26, 2014
