Juneau’s Reuben MacNaughtton was part of an Ithaca College men’s crew that finished second at the 30th Annual Head of the Genesee in Rochester, New York.

The sophomore helped the Bombers have a strong showing in the second varsity 8 race on opening day.

The rowing competition featured teams from Clarkson, St. Lawrence, Canisius, Binghamton, Buffalo, SUNY and RPI.

MacNaughtton’s boat had the sixth-fastest time among the 13 teams in the two men’s varsity races.

Last year, he was part of the team’s men’s novice 8 crew that placed second at the 2018 National Invitational Rowing Championship and New York State Championship Regatta.
