An exciting weekend of racing here with the Aggies! The Hadley Chase was the team’s first ever home race, right here on the Connecticut. All boats fought hard to defend their house, and the Varsity 8+ finished in a narrow second place finish four seconds behind Tuft’s University over the almost 5000m distance. In the same race, the second Varsity 8+ came in sixth, beating out all other second 8’s in the race. The Varsity 4+ improved leaps and bounds, finishing third overall. With head of the Charles less than a week away, all of the athletes are primed and ready.

The Aggies came out swinging in their first regatta over the season, racing hard over the 4500m distance. Despite it being their first race, oarsmen and coxswains from housatonicacross the varsity squad were able to put up competitive results, with the first varsity 8+ placing fourth in a narrow .2 second margin from third place and the second varsity 8+ coming right behind them in sixth to place second among all second eights. The varsity 4+ also put up a spectacular showing, starting the race seeded last and finishing 8th out of 15. With less than 2 weeks to go until Head of the Charles, all hands are on deck and the fall racing season is in full swing.
