Men’s crew began their fall season with
a good performance last Sunday at the Head of the Genesee according
to head coach Peter Wells. “In comparison to last
year’s start which was a bit disappointing, both boats showed
significant improvement in conditioning this year,” wells
“We were really using this race as more preparation for the upcoming Head of the Charles, so our boats were more mixed with both senior and underclassmen rowers. The men were only put together this week so I was encouraged with the results of both the 1Vand 2V boats,” said Wells.
The men’s 1V and 2v boats rowed well in their respective head races, with the 1V battling consistently with Hobart until crossing the line and the 2V showing promise with the efforts of such a young group. The 1500 m match race for the 1V boat allowed Hobart to just place ahead of the Ephs in the overall results.
Although there is room for improvement for the Ephs, coach Wells stated, “It’s promising but not perfect. We were much closer to the competition than last year’s race so both the seniors and I were pleased with this year’s result.”
The next race for the Ephmen is the Head of the Charles, which will take place on October 20 and 21 in Boston.
