Ben Davison, ’19, Wins 2018 Head of the Charles Champs Single

Becoming the first Washington undergrad in our history to win an elite-level Championship single sculling competition, Ben Davison, ’19, won the Men’s Championship Single (highest level 1x) at the Head of the Charles in October. Facing a field of 30 of the top scullers from around the world (including multiple 2016 Olympians), Davison fought his way – from the 26th position – down the 3-mile course in an incredible 17:55. “This is a signature win for Ben, I’m very happy for him,” said Michael Callahan. “No one I’ve coached has worked as hard as Ben. No one wants it more. He earned it.”
