Men's and Women's Rowing To Hold Walk-On Tryouts

Sept. 4, 2012

The Loyola University Maryland men's and women's rowing teams are seeking freshmen and sophomores for tryouts to compete for the Greyhounds this season.

No experience is needed to tryout.

There will be four separate information sessions:

Tuesday, September 4th 4:30 pm-5:15pm,   Maryland Hall 243
Wednesday, September 5th  4:30pm-5:15pm,  Maryland Hall 344
Tuesday, September 12th 4:30 pm-5:15 pm,   Maryland Hall 058
Wednesday, September 13th  4:30 pm-5:15 pm,  Maryland Hall 340

The rowing team has won four Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference titles since 2004 and one IRA National Championship. The varsity men have competed at the men’s national championship for 8 of the last 10 years against the best teams the Ivy league and Pac 12 have to offer. Non-scholarship athletes who did not row in high school have always enhanced the team here.

This year, winning the conference title will earn the Greyhounds an automatic qualification to the NCAA rowing championships. Come and be a part of the first Loyola rowing team to earn that bid!
