COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The University of Michigan women's rowing team continued its 2012 fall season on Saturday (Oct. 6) with an exhibition race at Ohio State on Griggs Reservoir. The teams raced three heats of four pieces each, with the Buckeyes sweeping the event.

The Wolverines closest margin came in the third heat when Michigan's "B" boat crossed the finish line 15 seconds behind the Ohio State "B" boat. Ohio State's largest margin came in the form of a 1:32 win in the "D" boat piece.

Michigan will next travel to Boston, Mass., on Oct. 21 for the Head of the Charles Regatta, an event which the Wolverines tied the program's best performance at the event a season ago with a third-place finish.
