All in Races

Aggies start strong to their championship season

Massachusetts opened their championship season Saturday with the New England Regional Championships in Worcester. The squad fielded four boats, sending three to the grand finals, and earning bronze medals in the third and fourth varisity eight categories. UMass finished fifth overall in team points which surpassed last year’s finish of sixth, overall. 

Spring is Here!

Massachusetts ended their five month racing hiatus Saturday, competing at the Class of 2003 cup on Lake Quinsigamond. UMass raced four eights in three different categories against Hamilton, Wesleyan, Colby, and host, WPI. Ultimately, it was Wesleyan who took home the cup after winning the first and second varsity eights events. 

Fun with the Fish

The Massachusetts men’s rowing varsity team concluded their fall racing campaign Saturday at the Head of the Fish in Saratoga, New York. 

But, what should have been a jam-packed day of racing for the Aggies was cut short by inclement weather that included consistent, strong rain, excessively choppy waters, regular gusts of wind over thirty miles per hour, and temperatures that danced around the freezing point all day.
