Rowing inaugural season recap
The Ohio Wesleyan rowing team made its intercollegiate debut at the Muskie Chase, hosted by Marietta College in October 2018, and completed its season by competing in the Dad Vail Regatta, the largest collegiate regatta in North America, with over 100 schools from the United States and Canada participating.
During the spring season, the Bishops competed in races at Adrian (Mich.) and Marietta, along with scrimmages at Case Western Reserve and Robert Morris universities.
At the Mid-Atlantic Rowing Conference championship in Lewisberry, Pa., Ohio Wesleyan placed 10th of 11 teams.
Three Bishop rowers received All- MARC recognition, with Meg Edwards ’22 and Fiona Roddy ’21 named to the Varsity All-MARC team and Katherine Miller ’22 selected to the Novice All- MARC team.
“It was a positive first year, and I think we put together a great structure to build upon,” says Coach Andriel Doolittle. “We’re very happy with the culture we have created in year one. It’s a hardworking group of women, and the team is motivated and excited for year two.”
