The University of Iowa women’s rowing team hosts Big Ten foe Indiana for a two-day scrimmage on Friday and Saturday at the P. Sue Beckwith Boathouse along the Iowa River. Friday’s competition will begin at 5:10 p.m. and Saturday’s competition will begin at 8 a.m.

Friday’s scrimmage will include 2×4000 meter intervals. In Saturday’s scrimmage the teams will race along a straight 1000-meter stretch beginning at Crandic Park.

The Hawkeyes began their fall season at the 2013 Head of the Des Moines Regatta on Saturday, Sept. 28 at Prospect Park in Des Moines. The Hawkeyes dominated the women’s collegiate 8+ event earning the top three positions. UI’s winning boat clocked a time of 16:32.109, while the runner-up posted a time of 16:46.055, and the third place boat finished with a time of 17:18.504. Coming in fourth place, nearly 14 seconds behind Iowa’s third boat, was Wheaton College Crew with a time of 17:32.462. In the women’s collegiate 4+, Iowa once again performed well taking first, second and fourth in the event. The first place boat earned a time of 18:30.593 and the runner-up boat posted a time of 18:56.719. Drake took third place with a time of 19:11.426, and the third Hawkeye boat followed with a time of 19:23.829 for a fourth place finish.

Andrew Carter was named the third head coach in program history for the University of Iowa rowing program in July 2013. He is in his 24th year overall and his 17th in the collegiate coaching ranks. His previous stints include the Univeristy of Miami (2009-13), Clemson University (2008-09), Bathes College in Lewiston, Maine (2000-08), the University of Southern California (1999-00), and Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. (1996-99). During his career, Carter has earned more than 50 championship medals, and over the last 12 years, he has coached seven All-Americans and 24 National Scholar-Athletes. He turned Miami into a nationally-ranked program, and led Clemson to its first-ever Atlantic Coast Conference title and NCAA Championship appearance.

Carter is a U.S. Rowing Level III Coach and a Rowing Canada Aviron Level IV Coach, as well as a National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) Master Instructor and Master Coach Evaluator.

Carter, who is married to Kim and a father to Mason, earned his bachelor’s degree in kinesiology-biomechanics from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and a master’s degree in kinesiology-biomechanics from the University of Western Ontario.

“This scrimmage is a new thing for the Hawkeyes and I’m really looking forward to it. These fall scrimmages among collegiate teams are growing in popularity because coaches work with one another to create an event that best meets the needs of the programs. They really do a great service in the overall yearly development plan. Adding this to a bit of head racing is terrific and having a Big Ten program come to town couldn’t be better.”
