BELLEVILLE, Mich. -- The University of Michigan rowing team completed the 2013 fall season with the Michigan Classic on Friday (Nov. 1) at Belleville Lake. It was the sixth annual exhibition against the Michigan men's club team.

The event format pitted 13 boats of women's varsity and men's club rowers against one another. The men's 'A' crew finished with the fastest time of the day, crossing the line with a time of 12:44.7. The top women's varsity boat posted the fifth-fastest time of the day at 13:22.6.

Race rules set before the start of the regatta determined that the first boat to cross the finish line would be declared the winner. The women's varsity D boat finished first with an overall time of 14:13.2.

The Wolverines will spend the winter training indoors before embarking on an early trip to Florida on Feb. 16, 2014, for an exhibition regatta against Central Florida on Lake Pickett.
