Here is an intense video clip of the Tribe Novice Men flying out of the starting blocks during their Dad Vail semifinal. You can see this quick start from lane 1 puts them out early in the race. Though they would not ultimately qualify, they faced large rowing programs such as UVA, Purdue, Minnesota, Grand Valley, and Rochester Institute of Technology. On top of that, the Tribe’s boat was comprised of lightweights and rowing against heavyweights. This did not deter these oarsmen as the start below clearly shows.
