2013 NEIRA: B1, G1, G2 take gold

The first, second, and third eights of the boys and girls squads returned to Lake Quinsigamond in Worcester, MA on Saturday for the 2013 New England Interscholastic Rowing Association (NEIRA) Championship Regatta. Conditions were challenging throughout the day, with winds gusting up to 30 miles per hour and temperatures in the 40sone of the coldest NEIRA regattas in recent memory.

In the morning heats, all boats qualified except for B2, who fell less than one tenth of one second short of qualification for the afternoon finals in a tightly contested race with BC High and St. Paul’s. In the afternoon, northwesterly winds picked up, making starts challenging for even the most experienced coxswains. On the boys side, B1 won gold by open water, winning the championship for the first time since 2008. B3 took 4th, less than one twentieth of a second behind third-place St. John’s. On the girls side, G1 won gold by nearly five seconds, their sixth championship in eight years. G2 beat out Kent by over three seconds to win first, while G3 finished in second, sixth-tenths of a second behind Kent.
