Head of the Charles Updates
A couple of news nuggets are filtering in from Boston, where the Washington rowing program will compete among an elite international field at the Head of the Charles this weekend on the Charles River.
The Boston Globe has a nice preview of the event, and gives a nod to former Husky and IRA National Champion coxswain Katelin Snyder, who will cox the women's Great Eight, a boat made up of Olympians and global medalists.
Snyder, then a senior at Washington, coxed the men's varsity eight last season that won in dramatic fashion at the IRAs in Rancho Cordova, Calif. Snyder also steered the men's eight that won the Head of the Charles last fall.
In order to determine who would head to Boston for the HOCR, the UW program recently held a race among its rowers. .
Be sure to keep checking GoHuskies.com and the Dawg Blawg for more information about the race. Both the men and women's eights will be racing on Sunday.
