“The continued positive progress of the program can be seen in the good result of our Novice 8.” said head coach Patrick Sweeney. “For their first race ever they handled the pressure well and gained a lot from the experience. On the Varsity side it was good to see the top two boats have a solid performance and finish in the top-10. This weekend really brought the entire team together. It was a positive start to the year.”
