The peak of the Spring season means an abundance of intercollegiate racing, and it is great to see MRC alumni going head to head!

A few MRC gents were reunited this weekend at Eastern Sprints in Worcester. @joshhrbert (Navy), @jcrsanzone (Northeastern), @henrybenton1 (Wisconsin), and @cmcnichol67 (Syracuse). The guys battled it out in the 3rd Heavyweight 8+ category with Syracuse taking a win in the Petit final, with Northeastern in close second. Navy narrowly missed out on that 3rd place position by 0.8 of a second. 

Over on the Women’s side, @lillymmurphy (Indiana) claimed a bronze medal in the Second Varsity 8+ at the Big 10 Conference Championships. @holly.prichard (U Miami) raced the second Varsity 4+ at the ACC championships and @josephiinew is set to race at the IRA championships the 31st of May. 

We are so proud of all our Alumni and we can’t wait to see what the rest of the season brings!
