Men’s Rowing

Undefeated throughout the spring, the heavyweights capped another sterlingseason with an Eastern Sprints championship, defeating Brown and Princeton in the final. The Crimson took home their fifth consecutive Rowe Cup, symbolic of overall heavyweight supremacy on Lake Quinsigamond. Harvard’s time was only 0.27 seconds off the course record.

The varsity came fifth at the Intercollegiate Rowing Association regatta, as perennial powerhouse Washington won the national championship.

Women’s Rowing

The Radcliffe heavyweights came in third behind Princeton and Brown at the Ivy League Championships, and thirteenth at the NCAAs. The undefeated Radcliffe lightweight varsity won the national title at the Intercollegiate Rowing Association regatta in Camden, New Jersey. Trailing by seven seats with only 500 meters to go, Radcliffe sprinted past Stanford and Bucknell for the gold.
