Brunswick School crew fares well against Lawrenceville

Brunswick’s rowing team had a rare mid-week race on Wednesday against The Lawrenceville School. This was the first-ever rowing race between the two schools.

The race was held on Mercer Lake in New Jersey, a fully-buoyed course where the U.S. National Team trains. Brunswick won the Varsity-8 and Second-8 races, while Lawrenceville handed the Brunswick Third-8 its first regular season loss in two years.

In the Varsity-8 race, neither boat had open water the entire way down the course. The same held for the Second-8 race. In both races, Brunswick was able to pull away from Lawrenceville in the last 500 meters. In the Varsity-8 boat, the Bruins crossed the finish line first with a time of 4:31.4, while Lawrenceville grabbed a time of 4:34.4.

In the Second Varsity-8 boat, the Bruins also claimed the top spot, posting a time of 4:47.7 while Lawrenceville took the silver with a time of 4:50.2. Brunswick’s Third Varsity-8 boat (5:10.6) was defeated by Lawrenceville (5:06.7).

Brunswick will be off over Easter weekend but will back in action in Methuen, Mass. and battle Andover, Boston College High, and Salisbury on April 26 at 4 p.m.
