St. Joseph Notre Dame student Richard Reid helped lead his Oakland Strokes Men’s Youth Eight team to a fifth-place finish at the 54th annual Head of the Charles regatta in Boston on Oct. 21. 

The Strokes completed the course with a time of 16:29.002, competing against 85 other teams. 



The team of Jean Cho and Shirley Lee won the Alameda Women’s Golf Club Partner Eclectic Championship on the Jack Clark Course.

The tournament was played over two days on Oct. 11 and 18. In this tournament the two partners play each of the 18 holes of golf twice (in two days) and the best net score for each of the 18 holes is counted for the final score. Thus, each team of two has four chances to get a good net score on each hole. The other three scores are discarded.
