Crew & Rowing
As word spread that the Boston University Athletic Department was on the verge of a large announcement, rumors floated that a men’s lacrosse team would be introduced to the university’s roster of Division I programs. By Tuesday morning, the University had its new team – and more. For the first time since 2004, BU Athletics will expand its varsity programs […]
As the leaves began to shrivel and as crisp autumn weather descended over New England, the time had arrived for one of Boston’s time-honored sporting events – the Head of the Charles Regatta, the largest two-day regatta in the world.
