“It was an outstanding day of performances in challenging conditions but we came away with the team points trophy, a NESCAC championship, and punched two tickets to the national championship regattas,” head coach Peter Steenstra told GoBatesBobcats.com. “Not a bad day of work by the Bobcats!”

Steenstra is referring to the NCAA Rowing Championships, for Division I, II, and III women’s open-weight varsity programs, to be held May 27-29 at Sarasota-Bradenton, Florida’s Nathan Benderson Park. and the 119th Intercollegiate Rowing Association National Championship Regatta, to be held June 3-5 at Mercer Lake in West Windsor, New Jersey for heavyweight men’s, lightweight men’s, and lightweight women’s programs.
