The LeBow College of Business Boat has been sent to represent Drexel at the 109th Annual Intercollegiate Rowing Association National Championships. The event began June 2 on the Cooper River in Camden, N.J.

The men competed in the third heat at 11:15 a.m. June 2 against Northeastern University, Georgetown University, George Washington University and the University of California. The Dragons finished the race in second place right behind Northeastern, advancing themselves to the semi-finals on the Cooper River June 3.

The junior led the Dragons with 52 points and was also named as a member of the All-CAA Second Team.
Now that she has been named to an IWLCA All-Region Team, Wood is eligible to be nominated for any of the IWLCA All-American Teams.
