Army Crew competed in the Head of the Housatonic earlier this month. It was a great way to start a long weekend. The team launched from the Yale Boathouse. The race is on a 2.7 mile course starting just north of Yale's Boathouse. This year Army competed against Coast Guard, Columbia, Boston University, and numerous other top schools. It was the first race for the novice team. The team did extremely well. The novice men's 8 won gold beating Coast Guard by three seconds. The men's varsity 8 won silver beating Coast Guard by 17 seconds. All rowers gained valuable rowing experience.
