Texas rowing reflects on Head of the Charles results

Sam Jackson

The Longhorns traveled to Boston to compete in the annual Head of the Charles regatta, where they struggled to claim top finishes.

Sunday afternoon, Texas competed in the Championship Women’s Fours facing the top rowing programs in the nation, including US Rowing who finished first, one minute and 42 seconds ahead of Texas.

The Longhorns followed just behind Yale at 19:46.09, placing 15th among a heat of 21 boats. Although Texas’s results did not meet expectation, its challenge to recover will come immediately next weekend at home.

Texas is scheduled to race this coming Saturday at the Head of the Colorado on Lady Bird Lake.
