Four oarsmen from the Duluth Rowing Club joined more than 2,000 rowers from throughout the U.S. and other countries to compete over the weekend in the 2019 US Rowing Masters National Championship in Grand Rapids, Mich.

Rowing in the G category (age 65-69), Duluth crews placed second place in the Men’s Quad (Tom Rauschenfels, Bill Hodapp, Arvid Brekke, Greg Peterson) and second in the Men’s Pair (Rauschenfels and Peterson). Rauschenfels and Peterson also were part of a composite 8-man crew that took second place.

The Duluth Rowing Club’s next regatta is the regional championship Northwest International Rowing Association Regatta on Aug. 23-24 in Kenora, Ontario.
