Delaware Men's Crew 2012 ERG-A-THON 1 DAY, 1 MILLION METERS ROWED, 1 NEW BOAT!
On Sunday February 5th 2012, the team will be holding an "all-day" rowing challenge, with athletes rowing 17,000 meters each on an Ergometer (rowing machine) to reach the 1,000,000 meter milestone on the North Green on University’s Newark campus. Individual sponsorship as well as business sponsorship is greatly appreciated! This year the team is aiming to raise $40,000 for purchasing a new Varsity 8!
Delaware Men's crew is a University sponsored club program with a storied rowing tradition that competes at the varsity level. The coaches are volunteers and the student-athletes pay yearly dues. Over the past couple of seasons, the team has been the most consistent performer, club or varsity, at the historic Dad Vail Regatta---with medals in the Varsity 8 (Silver 2010, Bronze 2011) and Lightweight 8 (GOLD 2009, Silver 2010, Silver 2011) as well as winning the overall men's team point championship at the Regatta from 2008-2010. The Varsity 8 has been ranked in the top 25 in the country both in 2010 and 2011, with the Lightweight 8 in the top 10 consistently as well. In addition, the program has produced several collegiate "All-American" rowers as well as 3 US National Team rowers.
