The men’s side got more bumps than any other college on the river, with M1 moving up 4 to their highest ever position (8th in Division 1), M2 getting their amazing fourth bump 5 seconds before the klaxon and M3 achieving 3 bumps during the campaign.
Also tremendous achievement from the women’s side, with W1 pushing Hilda’s to the line before bumping them on day one, W2 putting in a great performance to bump St. Anthony’s and W3 getting Wadham after less than two minutes of racing!
All six of our crews ended the campaign at the position they started in or higher, a great indication of the strength of the club’s performances this year! Well done to all those involved.
Wolfson entered 6 crews into Summer VIIIs in 2010, 3 men’s and 3 women’s VIIIs.
