FIRST FRESHMAN CREW HOLDS LEAD OVER HENLEY DISTANCE

The first Freshman crew defeated the second and third crews yesterday afternoon in the first race held by the 1926 boats over the Henley distance. In spite of the strong wind and rough water, which caused some trouble at the start of the race, the first crew gained an early lead of about half a length over the other two, which were rowing on even terms. This lead was increased to a length and a half at the one-mile mark, but could not all be held. The second crew sprinted, drawing ahead of the third, and coming within half a length of the leaders at the finish. Crew C was a length behind the second boat.
