Rowing Releases Spring 2019 Schedule

Canisius head rowing coach Kerri Brace announced the team's spring 2019 schedule Friday, unveiling a six-date campaign that will prepare the Golden Griffins for the 2019 MAAC Rowing Championship.
The 2019 slate is highlighted by two regattas in the friendly waters at the West Side Rowing Club, as well as the Griffs returning to both the Cooper Invitational and the Kerr Cup for the second-straight year.
The spring portion of the rowing season begins with the Blue and Gold heading east to the Finger Lakes to take on Ithaca in the Cayuga Duals March 30. Canisius then travels to Cherry Hill, N.J., on April 7 for the Cooper Invitational. That regatta will be hosted by Patriot League opponent Bucknell.
Coming back for its first local regatta of the spring at the West Side Rowing Club, the Griffs will take on local competition in the University at Buffalo, D'Youville and Buffalo State April 13 at the Jim Schaab Collegiate Regatta.
April 20 will see the Golden Griffins race in the Kerr Cup, a Philadelphia, Pa., regatta hosted by Drexel University. Canisius then hosts fellow MAAC rowing program Robert Morris in the Black Rock Cup April 28 in the final home regatta of the season, taking on the Colonials at the West Side Rowing Club.  
The Blue and Gold will get in its final event before the MAAC Championship with the New York State Rowing Championships May 4. That regatta will be held in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., as the Griffs will face competition that includes MAAC rival Marist.
The 2019 MAAC Rowing Championship is set to take place May 19 at Cooper River Park in Cherry Hill, N.J. The Griffs will look to improve on their third-place conference finish last year, aiming for their first-ever conference championship.
Canisius wrapped up the fall portion of its 2018-19 schedule Oct. 27 at the Head of the Schuylkill, after strong finishes at the Head of the Welland, Mercyhurst Invitational and Head of the Niagara regattas.
