At the May 13-14 Midwest Scholastic Rowing Association (MSRA) regional Championship, the Loyola Academy Rowing Association qualified four boats (during their 1,500 meter races) to participate at the SRAA National Rowing Championships in Oak Ridge, TN (concluded on May 26-27).
Each of LARA’s Women's 1V8+, Men's 1V8+, Women's JV8+ and Women's Freshman 8+ qualified to compete against some of the top high-school rowing programs in the country.

Many congratulations to Loyola’s Men’s 1V8+ for their third place national title earned during an intensively competitive race!
