Four Bulldog boats medaled in Rowtoberfest’s Women’s Collegiate 4+ and 8+ races held on the Chicago River and contested on a 4,000-meter long course. “We are really happy with today’s races,” said Drake head coach Charlie DiSilvestro. “We looked like a team that hasn’t been on the water for two weeks but have worked out hard. We are pleased how it went against some stiff competition and very happy with the results. Now we hope we can get our water to drop back home and get out on the water these next two weeks before Minnesota. Need a little help from mother nature. It was a really nice day with great family and friends support.” Rowtoberfest is the team’s first official race of the fall after the team’s original opening race, the Head of the Des Moines Regatta on Sept. 29, was cancelled due to high water on the Des Moines River in Des Moines, Iowa.
