The Christian Brothers Academy crew team fielded three boats at the 2021 Head of the Charles (HOCR) in Boston, one of the world’s most prestigious rowing events, on October 24.
The Colts rowed to top 25 finishes in races against fields of up to 84 competitors, which qualifies all three boats for next year's HOCR race.
The HOCR is known as a coxswain’s race due to a river course marked by its high degree of difficulty to navigate, with seven bridges and multiple 90 degree turns. Of course, CBA’s three varsity coxswains delivered, guiding their oarsmen to impressive finishes.
In the Men’s Youth Fours, Ryan Daniels steered CBA’s second varsity boat to 23rd and Ryan Maguire coxed the first varsity boat to 34th out of a combined field of 84. Paul Lasko steered the Men’s Youth Coxed Quad to 21st place out of a field of 47.
With top half finishes in their respective races, CBA earned all three of its bids to race at the Head of the Charles in 2022. HOCR, the largest regatta in the world, has nearly 3,000 boats with over 11,000 competitors from across the U.S.
