Men's Rowing's Varsity Eight Places 18th at Venerable Head of the Charles Regatta

WPI Men's Rowing - 2021

Cambridge, MA --- WPI Men's Rowing had three boats compete this weekend in the icon Head of the Charles Regatta.  The Engineers saw its varsity eight finish 18th and second varsity eight 29th in the Men's Collegiate Eights on Sunday, while the third varsity eight finished 32nd Saturday in the Men's Club Eights. 

The varsity eight reached the finish line in a time of 15:48.861, just a second behind St. Joseph's (PA) but two seconds quicker than an boat from Bucknell and six seconds faster than an entry from Notre Dame.  By virtue of its finish in the top of half of the field, WPI snagged automatic entry to the 2022 Head of the Charles.

The second varsity eight clocked a time of 16:24.974 en route to a 29th-place showing, the third varsity eight turned in a time of 17:05.673 to finish 32nd in its race to finish 32nd. 

The Crimson and Gray conclude the fall portion of its schedule on Saturday, October 30th competing on Lake Quinsigamond in the Wormtown Chase Regatta.
