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. 

Massachusetts Begins Fall Racing Schedule

The Aggies kicked off their fall racing campaign with the Head of the Housatonic in Shelton, Connecticut this past Saturday. Massachusetts looked to carry over momentum from last May’s strong showing at the ACRA National Championships (placing 7th, surpassing their previous best of 11th in the nation) proving that, even after graduating over ten seniors from last season, they are still one of the top dogs in the Northeast.
