Coach Brace's Post Regatta Comments
"We are extremely pleased with how this program kicked off the season today. With just one week of water time under our belts, and coming off our spring training trip, we are very proud of the team's mindset heading into racing. All three crews raced hard and to see our second varsity eight finish third in such a strong field makes us eager to keeping pushing this season."
