Boston College finished third overall while taking part in the "Row for Boston" initiative at the Beanpot on the Charles River in Boston, Mass., on Sunday morning.
Rather than wearing team uniforms, the Eagles and all five other schools at the event wore identical "Row for Boston" t-shirts as a symbol of unity and as part of a fundraiser to support the Boston Children's Hospital Emergency and Trauma Fund benefitting the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.
The Eagles came in third as a team with 30 points while Harvard-Radcliffe won the event with 53 points. Boston University finished second with 36 points while Northeastern and MIT came in fourth and fifth with 27 and 10 points respectively.
BC's "A" entry in the Varsity Four "B" race came in second with a time of 7:51.2, and BC's "A" boat in the Third Varsity Eight event clocked in with a time of 7:26.5 to also finish second.
The Varsity Four crossed the finish line in third of its event while the Second Varsity Eight and Varsity Eight each came in fourth.
Next, Boston College races at the EAWRC Sprints on the Cooper River in Camden, N.J., on May 5.
