The Hamilton College men's rowing team placed two boats in the top 13 of the club championship eights at the 2017 Head of the Schuylkill Regatta on the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia on Saturday.

Hamilton's "A" entry landed in eighth place out of 38 finishers in the club championship eights with a time of 14:21.408, while the Continentals' "B" entry ended up 13th in 14:52.101. Drexel University was the race winner with a time of 13:28.074.

In the college frosh/novice fours with coxswain, Hamilton took fifth place out of 16 boats with a time of 16:44.211. The University of Pittsburgh finished third just 1.823 seconds ahead of the Continentals, and the University of Pennsylvania captured the top spot with a time of 14:59.898.

"We had some really strong results," head coach Rob Weber said. "From two fifth place finishes for our novice entries, to eighth place for the men's varsity 8, and topped off by a second place finish by our women's varsity 8 -- all in big fields with a nice variety of club, D3 and D1 crews. Our 2V 8's also had great results, evidence that we have a pretty deep team. It's always fun to see our kids do so well and enjoy the rewards of their hard work. And this gives us a great springboard heading into the winter, which is an opportunity for us to get fitter, stronger and faster. The spring season should be fun!"

Hamilton has completed its fall season and will race again starting in March 2018.
