The Hobart second varsity eight placed 14th in a field of 69 boats in the club eight event in the Head of the Charles Regatta. The finish guarantees the Statesmen a berth in the same event next season.
Owen Henn, Max Swagler, John Heavey, Pierce Hewes, Evan White, Dillon Nachbar, Gerry Samson, James Hollyday, and Bob Taylor powered Hobart over the 3-mile course in a time of 15 minutes, 53.885 seconds. As the Statesmen made their way down the course, they were able to overtake four boats that left the starting line ahead of them. Hobart was the top finishing Division III team. MIT was next in 18th place.
On Sun., Oct. 19, Hobart’s varsity eight will compete in the collegiate eight event in the Head of the Charles.
