Cold and rain couldn’t stop Ithaca’s women’s varsity 8 crew at this year’s Head of the Charles Regatta in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
The crew received a fourth-place medal, besting 31 teams in the collegiate eights division.
“To get medals at such a prestigious race is very exciting,” says co-commodore Aliyah Emas ’10.
The Bombers had a successful fall season, winning the collegiate eights event at the Head of the Genesee in Rochester and finishing second at the Head of the Fish in Saratoga Springs.
“We are definitely hungry after [finishing fourth at] last year’s national championships,” says Emas, “and I think that is what is igniting the fire and propelling us forward.”
