It started out as an overcast Saturday on March 7, 2008 for the Southeastern Regional Collegiate Sprints (SERCS) at Lake Lanier, GA. But the Georgia Tech Crew team did not let it dampen their spirits. Many boats had strong performances that advanced them to finals later in the afternoon. It is only the beginning of the season, but things look promising.

The results are as follows:
Men's 1X: 3rd
Men's Light 4+: 1st and 4th
Men's Collegiate 4+: 1st and 2nd
Men's Novice 8+: 1st and 2nd
Women'sCollegiate 4+: 1st and 4th
Women's Light 4+: 2nd
Women's Novice 4+:1st
Men's Novice 4+: 1st (with a spread of nearly 10 seconds)
Men's Collegiate 2-: 1st
Women's Collegiate 2-: 1st
Men's Collegiate 8+: 1st, 2nd, 4th
Women's Collegiate 8+: 2nd, 3rd
The next day, the team headed back to Lake Lanier to scrimmage  Grand Valley University. This is the second time the two teams have scrimmaged and it will likely become a yearly tradition to race the northern crew as they make a short stop on their way  back home after spring training in Florida. They proved to be worthy competitors and served as motivation to continue working hard in preparation for more wins.

Congratulations on a great weekend of racing Georgia Tech!
