Dallas United Crew Brings Home 46 Medals in the Rowing Fall Season Opener

The Dallas United Crew (DUC) rowing team competed in its first competition of the season at the Head of the Oklahoma regatta in Oklahoma City on October 7-8 at the OKC River Sports District on the Oklahoma River. Great fall weather greeted the team as they competed in their races. DUC did a great job of preparing for the season and this weekend their hard work paid off.

Dallas United had six crews medal, bringing home a total of 46 medals overall, and topping the medal counts from the previous two years. The Men’s Novice 8+ brought home a gold medal with a convincing twenty-seven second lead over next boat.  “It’s great to see the novice men win,” said Program Director Steve Perry. “It's exciting to see their hard work pay off, especially on a 5k course.  With novices, the races can be a bit unpredictable, yet they did a great job and stayed with their race plan." DUC also placed silver in two races, the Men's Lightweight 8+ and the Women's Lightweight 4+.  Bronze medals were earned by three crews - Women's Varsity 8+, Men's Varsity 8+ and Men's 4+.  Congratulations to these DUC athletes:
