The Head of the Riverfront provided a solid start to the 2016-17 campaign for the UConn rowing team, which recorded one first-place and three second-place finishes on the Connecticut River on Sunday.

Rachel Signor and Courtney Dawless won the first race of the season for the Huskies, placing first in the Open 2x in a time of 18:00.72 – beating out Riverfront Recapture and Sacred Heart by well over a minute.
