Bente Bechtold '20, as stroke of the first boat, led her crew to an upset victory over St. Marks this weekend. She set an aggressive pace. Her crew took an early lead and never let up, averaging 39 strokes per minute for the entire race. 

Bente puts her head down, works hard, and does everything she can to help her crews win races. She started the season in the second boat and made it obvious over the last few weeks that the team needs her most in the first.
