Bucknell Frosh Row to Strong Finish at Rutgers

The Bucknell Freshman Men competed at the Rutgers Fall Classic this past weekend on the Raritan River in New Brunswick, NJ. Hosted by Rutgers University, the freshman-only regatta is composed of 2 evenly matched boats from each team, with the combined time of the two crews serving as the final time for that given team. The Bison Freshman 8’s ran the 4k course with times of 13:06.8 and 13:11.8, placing them 5th and 7th in the 12 boat field and with a combined time of 26:18.6 – which placed them 3rd overall ahead of crews from Georgetown, Delaware and Rutgers.

The Bison men now enter their winter training season with a positive outlook for the spring, having shown solid results throughout the fall season. Next up is the Winter Training trip to Orlando, Florida in January and our Spring Training Trip in March.
