Men's Crew

The Crimson decisively swept the Harvard-Yale boat race (the varsity winning by 41.3 seconds), to cap a strong season. The men's heavyweight varsity won every race except the Eastern Sprints, where they were a close second to Wisconsin. That result, combined with victories by the freshman and JV crews, earned Harvard the Rowe Cup, awarded for overall supremacy in heavyweight events.


The Crimson (20-25,16-7 Ivy) swept a two-game playoff with Princeton to capture the Ivy title. Ben Crockett '02 was Ivy League co-Pitcher of the Year.



Harvard (31-10, 15-3 Ivy) posted its best-ever record and first ECAC title, beating Columbia, 10-2, in the final. Tiffany Whitton '03 was Ivy League Player of the Year.
