We had a great day of racing at the Quinsigamond Snake Regatta in Worcester on 10/13.
Both men and women repeated last year’s gold medal sweep in the fours events; the men beat 2nd place Vt. by :32 and the women zoomed to a :52 win over Amherst in 2nd. The novice men and women came in first among the novice entries, with the Novice Women stealing the show with a 6th place finish among all crews! In the eights, the men were 20th and the women 23rd. Complete results are at snake.qra.org.
Now it’s on to the Charles on Oct. 20-21. We’re racing both men and women in the College Fours on Sat. and the College Eights on Sun.
An alumni boat of men will race in the Club Four on Sat as Polar Rowing. And our own Molly Taft ‘11 is bow seat in the Riverside crew in the Club Eight, and John and Christine Haines have a spot in the Director’s Challenge Mixed Double, all on Sat.
The trailer will most likely be parked at the FALS lot, and we hope you’ll swing by to say hello and greet the team. Sat. night’s alumni gathering will be at Asgard Pub and Restaurant at 350 Mass Ave in Cambridge starting at 7:15.
Based on our results in the fours this fall we should be competing for top spots in those events, so be sure to come out and holler for the Bears!
Let’s Go Black!
