Fordham Rowing concluded their fall season at the Metropolitan Championships this past weekend at Glen Island Park in New Rochelle, N.Y. Fordham set four boats onto the water to finish off what has been a successful first portion of the season for the Rams.

In the first Varsity Four, the Rams finished in fourth place with a time of 8:55.21. Fairfield University won the event, with Long Island University coming in second and Marist College placing third.

In the second Varsity Four, the Fordham B boat came in first place with a time of 8:30.1. This was over a minute faster than Iona University in second place.

Next, the Rams set sail in the first Varsity Eight event. Unfortunately, the Rams came in last place out of six boats with a time of 8:08.2. Marist College took home the top prize at 7:16.9, with Fairfield University and Sacred Heart University not far behind in second and third.

The last Fordham entry was in the Novice Four event, where the Rams capped off the day with a third place finish out of four teams. Fordham came in at 9:09.44, comfortably behind Marist in second place and Fairfield in third.

With the fall season all wrapped up for the Rams, they will now turn their attention to the spring. Expect more solid showings for the Rams come the new year.
