Junior David Ingber competes at the St. Louis Indoor Racing Championships as junior Becky Chanis, sophomore Gryte Satas and junior Stephen Washburn cheer him on. Washington University’s crew team hosted the event in the Francis Gymnasium of the Athletic Complex on Jan. 30. The race pits individuals against each other on erg machines as they rowed for 2,000 meters. There were heats at the varsity, novice, junior and masters levels for both genders. Ingber competed against other coxswains for 500 meters. “It’s more setting the baseline,” senior captain Jewell Thomas said. According to Thomas, the Bears are moving into their most intensive practices of the season in preparation for spring competition.

The original version stated that the rowers rowed for 2,500 meters, not 2,000. Student Life regrets the error.
