A GOOD CREW: Wesleyan men's crew celebrated an outstanding year of rowing in 2006-07. Its fall campaign was highlighted by a fifth-place showing among 58 entires in the collegiate eight division of the prestigious Head of the Charles Regatta in Boston and a second-place effort among 20 crews at the Head of the Fish Regatta in Saratoga, N.Y.

Once spring rowing began, the varsity eight won its opening dual race in Winter Park, Fla. as a prelude to a nearly undefeated season. The rowers later competed against Bates in Malden, Mass. pictured above.
Ranked second in New England most of the spring, the varsity eight defeated Williams in the Little Three regatta for the first time since 1999, claiming the coveted Saratoga Oar to commemorate its Little Three title.
Following their 11-1 dual-race performance, the Cardinals rowed their way to a silver medal at the New England Rowing Championships in Worcester, Mass. Wesleyan defeated Williams a second time at New Englands and also knocked off the Ephs during the ECAC Invitational Collegiate Championships in Whitney Point, N.Y. but no final places were determined as poor weather conditions cancelled the final day of the event. Over the last four years, the varsity eight is 32-12 in dual races and has three top-four finishes at New Englands, including a title in 2004, to its credit. (Photos by Jim Cody P'07, P'09)
