Another robust performance from Zola Baird

Zola's First Team Boat came second out of 41 boats in the Collegiate Eights race!


OD Rowing Club

We were excited to receive this update from Christopher Hale, U16 Rowing Head Coach and Bishops Teacher:

One of our OD’s Zola Baird (2017B) is currently rowing at Williams College. He is a senior, co-captain, and the 3 seat in the Williams 1v boat (First Team Boat).

His V1 came 2nd out of 41 boats in the Collegiate Eights race. His crew set a new course record for the event, beating several of the Division 1 rivals including: Temple, University of Michigan, Holy Cross, MIT, Marist.

What an amazing achievement. 

Congratulations to Zola and his crew for an awesome performance.
