UNC rowing uses focus, confidence in guiding its way to a win-filled weekend

This past weekend, the UNC rowing team had a strong showing at the Sunshine State Invitational in Sarasota, Florida. Competing against seven other schools, including conference foes Clemson and Miami in the 2,000-meter events, the Tar Heels earned gold in the 3V8 race and placed second in two other fixtures. As the end of the season draws near, the team has a goal of coming in sixth place in this year's ACC Championship - which is certainly a possibility, having beaten both Clemson and Miami in competitions over the weekend.
