As per performance, the club teams performed admirably. They won places in most races. For instance the club came first in the Men’s First Varsity 4 plus category as well as the women’s race of 4 plus and 8 plus categories. The club members had also competed in the Junior Regional that had been held at Bethel in Ohio. They had competed against other clubs of the Midwest. They even qualified for nationals to be held at Mercer Lake in NJ which is known to be the home town of Princeton University. There would be a summer camp that would be hosted by the club in the following month.
