Terriers to Compete at Princeton 3-Mile Chase on Sunday

Oct. 30, 2015


Coming off an impressive fifth-place in the Head of the Charles Regatta championship eight race, the Boston University men's rowing team will continue its fall season at the Princeton 3-Mile Chase on Sunday in Princeton, N.J.

The Terriers will send three boats to compete in the heavyweight 8 competition with four boats competing in the heavyweight 4s later in the day. The Princeton 3-Mile Chase is a head-race hosted by Princeton University each October following the HOCR. For the second time this month, BU will be competing against some of the strongest schools in the country including Princeton, Yale, Cornell and Penn.

“We look forward to racing in Princeton every year,” said men's rowing head coach Tom Bohrer. “It allows us to have another fall race against some top collegiate programs which will include Yale, winners of the Head of the Charles two weeks ago. Our 1V will have both Yale and Princeton in front of us so we will have to put a hard charge in and be aggressive the entire race”.

On Oct. 18 at the Head of the Charles Regatta, the Terriers proved once again they are among the very best collegiate crews in the nation. The first varsity eight finished with a time of 14:29.90, good for fifth. Only Yale. Harvard, Cal, and defending IRA National Champion Washington were able to edge out BU's varsity eight.

The Terriers' second varsity eight finished in 12th place with a time of 14:54.59, the second fastest time among all second varsity eight boats and ahead of several varsity boats.

After the Princeton Chase, the Terriers will next compete in the Foot of the Charles on Nov. 21st to complete their Fall schedule.

“We have three more weeks of our fall season,” said Bohrer. “We want to make the best for every racing opportunity and finish the season strong”.
