Bucknell Men Brave Extreme Conditions at Hobart

  The Bucknell Men traveled to Geneva, NY to compete against Hobart College on the Seneca Lake Canal on April 20th. 20-30mph winds from the east made the lake course un-rowable, so all races were contested in the adjacent canal. The races went off in order of 1V, 2V and 3V, respectively.
  The Bison Varsity 8+ was the first to compete, challenging the Hobart varsity in the early stages of the race but struggled to cope with the 20mph head wind in the 2nd 1000m - the Bucknell Varsity would eventually fade to an open-water deficit to finish with a time of 7:03.08
