Spring Racing on the Charles

This weekend the Huskies traveled to Boston, MA where the 1V8+, 2V8+, 3V8+ and N8+ raced against Boston College, Bates College, and Harvard Lightweights. The immense head wind and raining conditions didn’t make for ideal racing conditions but the team powered through gaining race experience and recognition on an even greater competitive scale.

The racing started with the V8+ earning a fourth place finish behind the third place Boston College by over 10 seconds. The 2V8+ and 3V8+ had similar results recording a fourth place finish as well.

The N8+ on the other side rowed to a third place finish besting Boston College and a lone Tufts 8+. They recorded a time within 11 seconds of the number 4th ranked Harvard Lightweight crew.

Next up the UConn Men will be hosting a home race on April 17th in Coventry, CT! They will be hosting the University of Massachusetts Amherst, University of Massachusetts Lowell, University of Rhode Island, University of New Hampshire, and the University of Vermont. Come down and support the team continuing with their intense racing season!
