BELLEVILLE, Mich. -- The ninth-ranked University of Michigan women's rowing team won 13 of 14 races in a double dual at Belleville Lake against No. 17 Louisville and Michigan State, with No. 3 Ohio State as the alternating partner.

The Wolverines swept races in the morning session against Louisville before taking six of seven races in the second session against Michigan State.

Highlighting Michigan's effort was another strong performance by the 1V8 crew -- Hannah Sherman (coxswain), Shannon Winchell, Bryna Oleshansky, Amanda Elmore, Chrissy Holm, Tara Foley, Emily Idoni, Carrie Lofgren and Louisa Freeman -- which picked up its fifth and sixth consecutive victories.

"Shannon Winchell got moved into the stroke seat and she did a phenomenal job, and Carrie Lofgren also moved into that boat and really rowed well," Michigan head coach Mark Rothstein said. Rothstein made note of late changes with senior Jessica Eiffert out due to injury.

The Wolverines edged Louisville in the first race of the day, pulling away in the final 500 meters for the victory at 6:40.20, 3.31 seconds ahead of the Cardinals. In the second session, with the headwind up, the Wolverines defeated Michigan State by 7.74 seconds with a time of 7:01.22.

Michigan's 2V8, 2V4, 3V4, 1N8 and 2N8 boats all swept both races against Louisville and Michigan State, giving the Wolverines momentum heading into the Big Ten Championships on May 18.

"We'd like to see continued improvement," Rothstein said of preparation for the postseason. "All of our boats have been getting faster and we need that to continue."
