The first official regatta of the season showed that the Huskies are hungry for speed. The novice boats had an impressive showing, with the 1N8+ placing 1st against Amherst College, and the 1N4+ placing 1st against Fairfield University and Mass Maritime. These results show that the team is continuing to attract and boat some of the most competitive novice line up in team history.
The UConn 1V8+ placed second, falling to the very competitive Fairfield University by 11 seconds, and beating Amherst by an impressive 13 seconds. The UConn 2V8+ also placed second in their race.
The team returns to practice this week with new things to work on in time next weekend’s racing!
