THE COACHING                                       After what proved to be a historic Fall campaign, the

THE PARENTS’                                       the spring season ahead.
                                                   The last two races of the season continued to build on the early success of the Hawkeyes,
                                                   with a clean sweep of all of the events at the long overdue Head of the Iowa in front of a roar-
                                                   ing home crowd, and some great finishes against tough competition at the Notre Dame Re-
                                                   gatta. These two races marked the first time our Novices raced as Hawkeyes, and they made
                                                             the most of their debut, winning the Novice 8 event at both regattas, the first time
                                                             an Iowa novice crew has ever gone undefeated in any season.

                                                              However, the Fall is now in the books and the Hawkeyes are heading indoors for
                                                              winter conditioning, during which time we must make great strides in both our fit-
                                                              ness and our technique if we are to continue our successes on the water. To break
                                                              up the monotony of indoor practices, we are training toward a team triathlon sched-

                                                              who is the fastest and fittest Hawkeye on the team. The coaching staff may make
                                                              an appearance, so the Hawks are really going to have to put in the miles in the
                                                              pool, on land, and on the rowing machine if they want a chance at winning.

                                                              Aside from providing some friendly competition during winter workouts, the staff is
                                                              poised to do our part in helping the team reach their personal and season goals.

One of the ways Iowa Rowing stands out from our competition is the great support from our parents’ as-
sociation. Every race sees a great spread and a lot of support from our fans, and a few looks of jealousy
   from other teams. Thanks for everything you do, and we can’t wait to cheer with you in the Spring!
