Head of the Charles
The Head of the Charles boats this year experienced both good and bad on the infamous course. The Varsity Women brought an 8+ to the course, full of freshman and sophomore rowers, headed up by co-captain, president, and senior Gabby Arondel. Despite a lack of experience the team passed two boats and was able to finish in 22nd, up two positions from where they started.
The Varisty Men’s boat this year was full of success, disappointment, and growth. The Men raced two boats this year. The first was Captain Adam Hanif in his single. Only his first year in a single Adam made the team proud finishing 29th out of 64 boats, and wining an automatic bid for next year. The V4+ started their race started out strong on course to place in the top half of the race. Unfortunatly with only a mile left on the course debris blown into the course by a storm the night before caught on the rudder and forced the boat out of bounds. With a loss of steering the boat finished the race far behind their original pace. However the glimpse of success in the first half of the race was enough to inspire the team for the remainder of the semester.
