After their racing shells were damaged in transit from New England to California, site of the 2015 NCAA Women’s Rowing Championships, Bates got a little help from some friends.

Loyola Marymount University and the University of Virginia each lent boats to Bates, and the Bobcats went on to win the Division III title. Here’s a video story that prominently features Bates rowers:
