Brown Rowers Excel on October 7 Connecticut Race

Middletown, CT- Brown men's and women's crews excelled in October 7 Head of The Connecticut Regatta, winning in women's open eights, men's novice eights, men's intermediate eights and men's novice fours.

Times had not been posted when the Brown teams left to return to Providence but men's varsity coach Paul Cooke thought his open eight finished near the top with a lineup that included his four returning varsity members from last season: Eric Winters, Constantine Demetracopolous, Andrew Goltra and Charles Pollak.

Brown men finished second, third, fourth, and fifth in pairs competition and second in novice fours.

Two boatloads of Brown women's novice fours, all walk-ons, finished third and seventh, and Brown women's intermediate eight, with experienced freshmen, finished fifth.
