BC High at the Head of the Charles Regatta!

The Head of the Charles is upon us and the activity on the river is inspiring. It’s an incredibly exciting weekend for the rowing community and BC High oarsmen are privileged to be a part of it again this year.  We hope BC High Rowing fans show up in numbers and can experience the largest rowing event in the world. Our boys will be racing 78 other Junior/HS school high crews from all over the country and have worked persistently to get to this point.

To begin the weekend, our rowers gathered for Mass and breakfast this morning at the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola, on Boston College’s campus. They were joined by over 100 other Jesuit high school student-athletes in town for the Head of the Charles coming from:

St. Joseph’s Prep (Philadelphia)

Dallas Jesuit (Dallas)

Belen Jesuit (Miami)

Canisius (Buffalo)

St. Peter’s Prep (Jersey City)
