Rowing Coach Larry Davis said. “I think there are some things also that popped up that show that we are still making a couple mistakes that really detract from what we are really doing as a group of athletes. We have got to polish some of those things up.”

Alabama recognized its four seniors, Kiffy Balchon, Tabitha Coleman, Jessica Parker, and Canella Tinker.
“It’s always a big thing for us and right now we don’t have a lot of home races, so beyond the fact that it is our only home race this year, when you have a Power of Pink event which is really important for the girls and for the team,” Davis added. “If you look at the seniors graduating and having the last chance to perform in front of a home crowd, all of those things come together and the students are really excited about it.”
