After a one-day rain delay, Notre Dame won all six races it entered in the Indiana Invite in Indianapolis this weekend. The weather for the competition was less than ideal but the Irish still dominated the field.

The No. 16 Irish varsity eight boat finished in a time of 6:25, six seconds ahead of runner-up Indiana.

The Irish entered two boats in the second varsity eight race, taking first and fourth place in the event.

Notre Dame also entered two boats in the varsity four race and this time swept the top two spots.

The Irish also came out on top in the second varsity four, novice eight and second novice eight races.
