Brunswick opened the 2014 spring crew season with a three-team race in Providence, R.I. on the Seekonk River and swept the racing with three convincing wins over crews from Tabor Academy and Hingham High School.

By virtue of winning a majority of races on the day, Brunswick brought home the Brunswick-Tabor Cup, a trophy raced for annually by the those schools.

Brunswick was supposed to start the season with a six team race on Lake Quinsigamond, but ice on the lake forced the race to be canceled. Thanks to the kindness of Albin Moser and the Narragansett Boat Club, three teams were able to relocate to Providence.

In the Varsity-8 race, Brunswick crossed the line in 4:39.1 with Hingham open water back in 4:45.3 and then more open water to Tabor coming in at 4:50.9.

The teams raced against an incoming tide with a light variable cross-wind.

Brunswick’s Varsity-8 is made up of senior tri-captain Max Skolds at stroke, senior Alex Skolds, junior Matt Marvin, sophomore Will Bass, sophomore Will Powers, junior Freddie Polak, junior Conor Winston, junior bowman Jack Duggan and junior coxswain Nikhil Rajan.

At the Varsity level last year, Tabor took third in New England, Brunswick was fourth and Hingham was eighth. The Brunswick Second Varsity-8 also led wire-to-wire and finished 12 seconds up on Tabor, with 15 more back to Hingham. Brunswick’s Third-8 earned a 26-second victory in its race.

The Bruins will be next back in action on Saturday against Fairfield Prep at 2:30 p.m. on the Housatonic River in Shelton.
