Ohio State women's rowing wins 2013 NCAA rowing championship

The Buckeyes win their first ever NCAA team title.

12-O-H. The Ohio State women's rowing 2V8 team completed an undefeated season and in the process won their first ever NCAA national championship. The 1V4 defeated perennial power USC and Washington heads up to win their second consecutive national championship as well.

Though the 1V8 team placed third in their respective Grand Final, Ohio State was able to secure enough points (126) to best the field to make Ohio State overall national champions. Andy Teitelbaum, in his 17th season as head coach of the team, can add a title to a 2013 which saw him named the Big Ten's Coach of the Year.

This adds to the legacy of women's national championships which include synchronized swimming and pistol. Congratulations to the lady Buckeyes as well as the alumni that helped lay the groundwork for this group. Go Bucks.
