Grand Valley and Purdue are the top two club teams in the country and Eastern Michigan is a strong division I team. We will have lots of racing for all three boats and will put to use the race planning and technical work we have worked on at practice. Now it is time to go out and execute.” Following the Lubbers Cup, Drake will have a week off before returning to the water on April 22. The Bulldogs will travel to Omaha, Neb. to face nearby rival Creighton in the annual spring duel between the teams.
