Bears Open Season at MIT

Bears Open Season at MIT

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Coast Guard opened the season against MIT and Division I Rhode Island.

While the Bears placed last in both races, it was a good benchmark to set for the season.

The Varsity 8 was able to make a shift from a frantic first 1000 to a more controlled and powerful second 1000, executing well on the race plan in the second half and finish in 7:33.69.

The Varsity 4 stayed neck and neck with the MIT B boat, leading into the last 500 and getting nipped at the line with a time of 8:51.93.

"We have a really young squad, with 5 freshmen/novices in the Varsity 8, so getting down the course with some power and finesse today was a solid outcome for us," said head coach Jodi Hope. "With more experience and skill development over the coming weeks, this squad will be able to find a lot more speed."
