CAMDEN, N.J. - Boston College rowing competed in the Finals of the Knecht Cup Regatta in Camden, N.J. on Sunday, April 15.
"Every single boat raced extremely hard this weekend," assistant coach Amy Weatherby said. "We are proud that eight of our crews had the opportunity to compete against other talented athletes in the Grand Finals."
The Second Varsity Eight had a great sprint to earn bronze, behind Bucknell and Duke.
In a final that included three Eagle boats, the BC Second Varsity Four A finished second to take the silver medal, with the BC C and B boats not far behind in fourth and fifth place, respectively.
The Varsity Eight faced the fastest competition of the day and raced hard the whole way down the course for a fifth place finish. Earlier in the day, some members from the Varsity Eight and Second Varsity Eight rowed two quads in the Varsity Quad event and won gold and bronze medals.
The Freshmen Eight rowed a strong race and came in fifth ahead of North Carolina. The Varsity Four raced against tough competition in the Petite Final and came in fifth ahead of UNH.
