Women's Crew Wraps Up Fall Season With Victory at Foot of the Charles
The Bears traveled to Boston over the weekend to compete in the Foot of the Charles, coming away with a decisive victory in the prioritized varsity four to close out the fall season. Among the schools that finished behind Brown were Ivy rivals Harvard and Dartmouth, and several other impressive teams.
In the first race of the morning, the varsity fours took the course, as teams split their top two eights into fours. Brown started first off the line, and only pulled further away over the course of the race, finishing in 13:38, well ahead of second place Northeastern, which crossed the line in 14:05. Brown's "B" boat took fifth overall, ahead of any other second boat, and also in front of the top boat from Syracuse. The Bears were just five seconds off of second place, coming in at 14:10.
Brown was at it again in the freshman eight race, once again sweeping the field by a solid margin, coming in at 13:39 to edge second place Radcliffe by six seconds. Bruno wrapped up the day with another solid performance in the third varsity eight, as the Bears took a close second to Northeastern. The Huskies won the event with a time of 13:44.8, while Brown crossed the line just after, finishing in 13:45.5.
