WMRC showed their school spirit by joining in the Homecoming Parade! The next day, we held a tailgate before the W&M football game against Towson. We were excited for the return of our alumni, and the Tribe defeated the Dukes 17-7! Special thanks to Mrs. Mitchell for the festive cupcakes.
Boat Naming Ceremony
The newest addition to our boathouse, the beautiful, black Vespoli 4+, was officially christened the Mary Mitchell '85 on the morning of October 26th. We were moved by the speech of our generous donor Beth S. Covin that allowed us to learn about the life of the boat's namesake, Mary Mitchell, a William and Mary alumnus who lived life to the fullest.
Head of the Lafayette
Our novice class traveled to the Norfolk to compete in their first regatta on October 27th. Both crews raced in the Collegiate 8+ and 4+ categories, gaining invaluable experience while being cheered on by their teammates.
Head of the Charles
This year we received two entries, a Mens Club 4+ and a Womens Club 4+. Both races were on Saturday Oct. 19; the men raced at 1:14pm and the women raced at 1:39pm. The men came in 22nd out of 50 with a time of 17:48.93 and received an automatic bid to the Head of the Charles 2014! The women placed 25th out of 47 with a time of 20:13.42. The team is immensely proud of both crews and had a wonderful trip to Boston.
