Cheers to the entire St. Mary Academy-Bay View Crew team and congratulations to Emma O'Leary '22 and Lindsey Williams '23!
For the first time in history, Bay View had four boats invited to participate in the Haad of the Charles Regatta in Boston last weekend. Congratulations to all and especially to Emma L. and Lindsey W. who earned a Bronze Medal in the Women's Youth Doubles, rowing against more than 50 boats of very accomplished athletes!
Since 1965, the Head of the Charles Regatta has welcomed the world's best crew teams to the Charles River for the ultimate 2-day regatta in the world, with over 11,000 individual rowers competing. The ages of competitors range from 15-year-old youth rowers to athletes in their 90's, and the event is seen as a must-attend race for world-class and Olympian rowers. Rowers must be invited to attend, and Bay View was proud to be invited to bring 4 boats this year. While the team has participated in the past, this is the most boats they have been invited to bring. Go Bengals!!!
