Men Prepare Title Defenses with Head of the Charles
By TROY BRIDSON
The Cornell men’s heavyweight and lightweight rowing teams will be in action this weekend at the Head of the Charles Regatta. The event, held annually on Boston’s Charles River, will feature some of the best rowing teams from around the world. Cornell will square off against other college teams and several national teams.
“National teams are always a nice benchmark and this race will help us gauge what we are capable of doing this year,” said heavyweight senior captain Gregory Davis. Cornell will compete in the 4+ and 8+ championships. Both the heavyweight and lightweight teams have a lot of experienced rowers, so they are hoping for quality results.
