Team History

Founded in 2006 by Bill Braychak, the program joined the NEIRA league in 2013 under Coach Belmonte.

In May 2016, the program qualified for the New England Championship, for the first time and in all three Varsity Eights. Several pairs and singles started a summer Falcons' Racing Program in 2016 as well. Then in October, with their performance at the 2016 regatta, the Falcons' Varsity Four secured an entry in the 2017 Head of the Charles.

Graduates of Xavier currently row for the U.S. Coast Guard and Naval Academies, as well as Liberty, Marist and Catholic Universities.

Assistant Coach Davis Moore joined the program in the Fall of 2016. At Harvard, he rowed briefly under Harry Parker.
