BATES ROWING OPENS SEASON AT TEXTILE RIVER REGATTA
LOWELL, Mass. -- The Bates College rowing teams opened their second varsity seasons with mixed results at the Textile River Regatta in Lowell, Mass. this weekend.
The men's top varsity eight-plus-cox boat finished sixth of 18 teams, and third among college boat, including finishing ahead of Williams and Wesleyan. The second varsity squad placed seventh among collegiate crews in the men's club eight-plus race and 10th overall.
The women's results showed the team's youth, with four first-years in both the top varsity and second boat. The top team placed 15th of 20 teams, while the second boat was 24th of 30 crews. "Both teams showed great promise," said head coach Andrew Carter, in his first year at Bates.
