WATERVILLE, Maine -- Colby Men's Crew hosted its annual race against UNH and UVM for its only home regatta of the season at the Colby Hume Center. Rain and wind whipped down Messalonskee Lake at times, but Colby's local knowledge gave them an edge in their head to head races.

The next event was the Men's Second Varsity Eight. The Mules' Second Varsity Eight of Coxswain Minori Cohan, Stroke Parker Sikora, 7 Sam Subbukumar, 6 Daniel Ellison, 5 Chris Marcello, 4 Will Seivwright, 3 Simon Pratico, 2 Daniel Koo, and Bow Henry Lockwood commanded the race and won with a time of 6:36.6.
