Brunswick Crew beats Salisbury, nets Richard Curtis Trophy

The Brunswick crew team traveled to the Merrimack River yesterday to race Boston College High School, Salisbury School, and hosts Phillips Academy (Andover).

The Brunswick Varsity-8 crossed the finish line first, one half-length ahead of Andover, with another length back to Boston College High and open water back to Salisbury.

This was Brunswick’s first regular-season win over Andover at the Varsity-8 level. Brunswick also captured the Richard Curtis Trophy for the third year in a row with its win over Salisbury.

Andover handed Brunswick’s Second Varsity-8 its first loss of the year, with a five second victory. Brunswick finished one second ahead of Boston College High for second position, with another 11 seconds back to Salisbury.

The Third Varsity-8 boat held similar results to the Bruins’ Second Varsity-8. Andover paced the field, winning by a deck of open water over Brunswick who were a length ahead of BC High with open water back to Salisbury.

Brunswick’s Fourth Varsity-8 boat, depleted due to illness, raced tough but came in third. The Brunswick freshmen boat also took third, but were outmatched in terms of size and power against the Fifth Varsity-8 boats from Andover and BC High.
