By BECKY HOBART
For the members of the Crew team,
rowing is more than just a sport.
There's something about being in a boat
struggling against a river's current
that gives the Crew team an exciting
challenge that many sports don't offer.
The Crew club offers many teams for
everyone to get involved in. There are
varsity, junior varsity, and novice
teams for both men and women. There
can be either eight or four people
rowing at a time.
"It's a team sport" said Rick Bach-
man, an oarsman on last years team.
"But it's also highly individual. It takes
a lot of concentration and timing."
THE CREW team is ideal for people
who want to get into shape. The team
works out everyday lifting weights,
running, and rowing in the IM pool and
eventually on the Huron River.
"The practices are hard, but it's
always fun," said Lisa Irwin, also a
member of last year's team. "We aim
to do well but it's not like a varsity sport
where you have to win."
The races, ranging anywhere from
800 to 2,500 meters take about five or

eight minutes to complete.
"If the water is flat and there isn't
much current the race will go quickly,
but if the river is choppy it's like rowing
up hill" said Bachman.
THE TEAM will be going to Canada
and also to the Head of the Charles in
Boston, one of the biggest races in the
U.S. Races are usually run in the fall
and spring.

This year's team is trying to raise
money to replace some of the outdated
equipment, such as boats and paddles
The boats are made of thin wood an*
can be easily broken; however, despite
their light weight, they do not tip over
very easily.
Like a lot of the club sports, you don't
hear much about the crew team, but it's
a contemplative and exciting sport.
