Men's And Women's Rowing To Host Walk-On Tryouts

Sep 6, 2013

BALTIMORE - The Loyola University Maryland men's and women's rowing teams are seeking freshmen and sophomores for tryouts on the novice team this season.

No experience is needed to tryout, although experienced rowers are also welcome.

There will be two separate information sessions:

Wednesday, September 11th 4:30 p.m., Maryland Hall 342
Thursday, September 12th 4:30 p.m., Maryland Hall 342

The team will have coaches and rowers available to answer questions on Saturday, Sept. 7, at the home soccer game at Ridley Athletic Complex. Members of the team will also be available at the freshmen tailgate from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m., and the activities fair located on the quad, Tuesday, Sept. 10 from 4 p.m. - 6 p.m.

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 11 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.

Questions can be sent to the rowing office at 410-617-5671, and x5016 or by emailing head coach Al Ramirez (
