Rachel Brickman '12

Oh heyyyy welcome to my summer blog! I’m Rachel Brickman, a rising senior at Amherst originally from the very exciting suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia. As a Classics major, I can do really useful things like understand this Finnish radio station or get those “amo, amas, ___” questions on the Monday crossword. Luckily, I have also completed the requirements for medical school, so I have a backup career plan if ESPN isn’t looking for a Latin-speaking commentator.

The Amherst Men's Crew Team kicked off their fall season today at the Head of the Snake regatta in Quinsigamond. In attendance from Amherst were four varsity fours, a novice four, and an exhibition four composed of ex-national team rowers.

Finishing fifth and sixth for Amherst were the exhibition boat and the men's first varsity boat with times of 14:58 and 15:02. The second, third, and fourth varsity boats turned in times of 16:16, 16:33, and 17:50, good for twelfth, fourteenth, and nineteenth out of the twenty boat field.
