The BSBC had a strong showing at the 53rd annual Founder’s Day Regatta — a New England Classic rowed in exclusively four-oared shells. Brunswick’s 1st Varsity Four took 2nd place, finishing behind only the Cincinnati Junior Rowing Club (CJRC swept the regatta). In the final race of the day, the four of Matt Podlesak, Corey Juan, Sean Forester, Cooper Briggs, and Tobin Saer bested the top boats from all rival prep schools.
The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th fours each had strong morning heats to earn spots in the Grands, but each took 5th place in their respective Finals.
The 5th four event (in which each team is allowed to enter two fours), Brunswick showed its team depth in earning both the silver and bronze medals behind CJRC’s 5th four.
The Brunswick freshmen four was the 4th fastest of the 22 teams in their Novice Four category.
