The men’s and women’s A boats have just won the Collegiate 8+ events at the Head of the Charles Regatta, and the women’s B boat has moved up from 14th to 4th. This is very big for the women’s A boat and HUGE for a recently soaring men’s team and for the women’s B boat (demonstrating continuing strong breadth of team on the women’s side that really helps at NCAAs, where the D3 championship is based on the combined finishes of the A and B boats). On the women’s side, Trinity seems to be in a building year and Bates continues to build on last year’s remarkable improvement, sure to be a strong contender in post-season competition next spring.

Among the HOCR announcing team is Williams’s own first female Olympian Nancy Storrs, who coaches for the Canadian National Team and is a legend in the sport.

Yesterday, Williams Women’s Head Crew Coach Justin Moore repeated at silver in the Masters doubles with his friend Coach Andy Card of Yale. There were also several alumnae on the course in various events but I haven’t tracked down their results yet.

Look for very strong Williams men’s and women’s teams this spring. 

Go Ephs!
