CAMDEN, N.J. - The University of Wisconsin women’s lightweight rowing team has claimed a national title at the Intercollegiate Rowing Association championships Saturday.
UW won the varsity four event yesterday on the Cooper River. Wisconsin finished fourth in the varsity eight race which determines the national champion. Stanford claimed the title there. It was the 13th straight season UW has finished in the top-four in the grand final.
The University of Wisconsin men’s rowing team medaled twice and finished eighth as a team at the Intercollegiate Rowing Association (IRA) National Championships yesterday. The UW open four finished second and the lightweight four finished third in the competition held in Camden, New Jersey.
After just a month with the Packers, rookie free agent Dezman Moses is turning some heads. With an injury to Clay Matthews holding him out of team drills, Moses was getting a lot of practice time with the second team. The linebacker showed coaches and scouts he could help with the pass rush. That’s what the team is looking for and that’s why Green Bay drafted outside linebacker Nick Perry in the first round and defensive end Jerel Worthy in the second. Now, it’s looking like Moses might stick, and add a little more help putting pressure on opposing quarterbacks.
