News & Updates From The HOCR
The iconic Head of the Charles Regatta does not begin until Sunday, Oct. 24. But the Huskies are en route to Massachusetts to begin training, and already the Boston Globe has checked in with an update of Husky crew team.
The stakes are higher this season in Boston because many of the champion/international 8 boats will be en route to New Zealand to compete for the 2010 World Championships. Therefore, a lot is at stake for the college teams (a la Washington) who will compete on the Charles River.
This was the crux of the story in Thursday's Boston Globe. Cal coach Mike Teti called the HOCR the "Rose Bowl of Rowing," and will have his Golden Bears prepared for the head race this weekend. So you can bet that Husky coach Michael Callahan is similarly motivated with his 8.
"We always push each other to higher levels,'' said Huskies coach Michael Callahan on the rivalry, and who has two oarsmen competing in the Canadian world eight. "It's been a storied rivalry for over 100 years.''
