NORTHAMPTON, Mass. - The UMass rowing team defeated UConn in four races at their home course on the Connecticut River on Wednesday. The Minutewomen lost in two close races to the Huskies, losing by three seconds or less in both the Varsity 8+ and the Novice 8+.
The Second Varsity 4+ won by the greatest margin on the day, crossing the finish line 17 seconds before the Huskies with a time of 7:11.37. The Junior Varsity 8+ also saw a comfortable lead against UConn, finishing over 13 seconds ahead of the Huskies.
The Varsity 4+ found their second victory of the spring season and defeated UConn by over six seconds.
Despite its victory last season against the Huskies, the Varsity 8+ could not get ahead of the UConn boat and lost by just over three seconds. The Novice 8+ lost by the smallest margin of the day, finishing a mere two seconds behind UConn.
UMass will compete again on Saturday at MIT in Cambridge, Mass.
