Saugus High graduate and University of Michigan rower Taylor Schubert became a national champion on Sunday when her Second Varsity Eight boat won the 2012 women’s rowing NCAA Championship.

The Second Varsity Eight is one level below the highest possible level of collegiate competition in the sport.

Her boat beat out second-place Ohio State in the final race at West Windsor, N.J. with a time of 6 minutes, 37.04 seconds.

Michigan came in second place overall as a team, finishing five points behind national-champion Virginia.

Schubert, a sophomore walk-on, was promoted to the 2V8 boat for the first time this spring.

Since then, Schubert and her crew won all nine of its regular season races in addition to claiming a Big Ten championship on May 13.

Prior to arriving at Michigan in the fall of 2009, she didn’t have any rowing experience. Schubert played volleyball for Saugus before graduating in 2009.

This week’s victory marks the second 2V8 national title in Michigan rowing history.
