2017 Outlook
"A year ago I said in this forum that we still had a long way to go as a team, and that proved true. While we were coming off medal-winning performances at the Eastern Sprints in both the Varsity and 2nd Varsity 8+ events in 2015, we had also graduated a deep and strong senior class. There was an assumption that we’d be able to build off of that in 2016, however, the pieces weren’t really in place for that to happen, both athletically and culturally. I was proud of the team we had developed by the 2016 IRA, but it took all year to get to that point. The Men in the Arena knew that finishing 7th nationally was probably the best we could have done, and, was also a very respectable result for a Varsity 8+ comprised of 4 freshmen, 2 sophomores, 2 juniors, and 1 senior. When you aim for the IRA grand final and miss, winning the petite is not a foregone conclusion – it’s a hard race to win on a number of levels.

"2016-2017 has been an entirely different campaign, and perhaps a better indicator of where our program is heading. Our captains, Trevor Appier and Louis Copolov, have done an outstanding job of leading a cultural transformation within our team, and the entire squad has been eager to buy in. We’ve had good practices since day one of the year, we had great results team wide at the Foot of the Charles in November (winning both the 4+ and 8+ events) to cap off the fall season, and we’ve had a solid winter training period that has included more rowing on the water than we’ve ever done in January/February. We start our on-water selection period next week and racing starts on April 1st. Our dual slate is as challenging as any in the league. The heats at Sprints will be unbelievable as usual, as will the IRA semis. The team is excited to put three solid 8+’s in a position to finish as high as they possibly can at the Eastern Sprints and IRA National Championship."
-Head Coach John Pojednic

2017 Outlook
"We are fortunate to have great leadership from our senior class, a talented and hungry group of freshmen and two strong classes sandwiched between them. Northeastern is celebrating 40 yrs of women’s rowing this spring and look forward to a competitive racing season, capped off with the program's first trip to the Henley Women’s Regatta."
