A sunny Saturday on Mercer Lake yielded a successful day of racing for UConn Men’s Crew. Both of the Freshman Fours made it through to the grand final, with the Frosh 4+ placing 3rd and the Frosh Lwt 4+ placing 6th. The varsity lightweight 4+ placed 2nd out of the lightweight fours in a combined lightweight/open 4+ event.
The Club 4+ and Club 8+ boats had solid runs, progressing from heats to finals and place 6th and 7th in their respective events. Additionally, the second Varsity 4+ finished 5th in their race.
The 1st varsity eight’s event was left for Sunday morning, however it was unfortunately canceled due to high winds. The athletes left Knecht at 7:30am and were back on campus by 11am.
The team is looking forward to getting back on Coventry Lake this week and prepare for the home race on Sunday April 22.
