The Sacred Heart rowing team hosted Iona, Fairfield, Army, Skidmore and Drake on Saturday afternoon in the 2011 SHU Invitational along the Housatonic River in Shelton.
The Pioneer JV 8+ team placed second in their race while the two SHU Varsity 4+ teams placed third and fourth overall. The Pioneer varsity 8+ team took fourth in the final race of the day. The regatta served as a good indicator as the Pioneers will compete against Drake, Iona and Fairfield once again in two weeks at the 2011 MAAC Championships.
SHU is next in action on April 9th and 10th when they compete in the Knecht Cup. The 2011 MAAC Championship is scheduled for April 17th at Mercer County Park in New Jersey.
