Despite the windy and white-cap weather conditions during the Textile River Regatta, the UConn Men’s Crew team took gold in their only race of the day. The Novice 4+ rowed by Ian Richardson (stroke), Noah Freeman (3 seat), Jack Kostal (2 seat), and Tony Vournazos coxed by Melanie Kahn bested their 9 boat competition by a minute.
As the day progressed the weather conditions in Lowell got too rough and the rest of the regatta was called off. The two Varsity 8+s, Varsity 4+, and Novice 8+ were excited to race and put their hard work to the test but will use that energy towards this coming week at the Head of the Housatonic.
The Head of the Housatonic will be held on October 10th in Shelton, CT. The UConn Men will be racing two Varsity 8+s, a Varsity 4+, 3 Novice 8+s, and a Novice 4+. Come out and support the Huskies as they take on the likes of Yale, Coast Guard Academy, and Fairfield!
