FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. – Nova Southeastern University’s women’s rowing was announced among the top programs in the nation in the latest NCAA DII Poll by the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association/US Rowing. The Sharks are currently positioned in eighth-place after receiving 28 total votes, as they are looking to carry that momentum into a strong showing at the University of Central Oklahoma’s Central Sprints on Friday in Edmond, Okla.

REACTIONS FROM HEAD COACH DEVIN FAY:

  • “What is incredible to me is if you look at the list you will see Central Oklahoma, Western Washington, Humboldt State and UC San Diego as four of the top five teams in the nation, ranked by the coaches and we get an opportunity to see all of them this weekend.”
