UConn Hosts the First Annual Patriot Cup

This past Sunday, April 17th, the UConn Men hosted their first home race in 4 years. Local state New England colleges attended: University of Massachusetts Amherst, University of Massachusetts Lowell, University of Rhode Island, University of New Hampshire, and the University of Vermont.

Both the V8+ and the 2V8+ finished 4th in a competitive heat, with the 2V8+ only 0.05 seconds off of 3rd place. The 3V8+ earned a second place finish only 8 seconds off of the 1st place URI boat.

The N8+ had a great showing and earned 2nd place in a very fast N8+ race. The N4+ were in a tough race and earned 4th place out of 5 boats.

The huskies now have 2 weeks to prepare for the New England Rowing Championships that are going to be held on April 30th in Worcester, MA. We hope to see all you Husky supporters there!
