Sprint Series on Melton Lake

On May 1, 2016, ORRA hosted an inter-conference Sprint Series between Tennessee, Clemson, Iowa, and UCF, as these programs tuned up for their respective Conference Championships.  Stan Duda, University of Iowa parent, provided this great video of one of the races, following from a drone.
