Simmons crew races in the Charles River Regatta
The Simmons crew team finished 16th in the Women's Collegiate Eight at the Charles River Regatta last weekend, overtaking rowing teams from Wesleyan, Colby, and Tufts. It is the highest placing and fastest time in this event for Simmons. The Sharks placed 23rd in the Collegiate Four.
Head coach Nik Kurmakov talked about the importance of this regatta for the team:
For us, [The Charles River Regatta] is preparation for the spring. So, we can figure out who we'll compete against in the spring season from other Division III schools before the NCAA qualification regatta.
The team finished their fall season this weekend, placing second at the Seven Sisters Regatta on the Connecticut River. Coming in just behind Wellesley College, Simmons beat out Smith College, Mount Holyoke, and Bryn Mawr College.
The Sharks will return for the spring season on March 10 in Melbourne, Florida. After the enormous success during the fall, we are very excited to see how the rest of the year goes.
