The Crimson third varsity boat finished in 6:40.3, posting nearly a 20-second lead over Dartmouth and an even greater one over the Engineers. The second freshman boat raced as two fours, with the Harvard 'B' crew finishing in 7:52.9, the Harvard 'A' crew posting a time of 8:10.6, and the Dartmouth 4V crossing the line in 8:15.3.
“The crew is also happy with the step we made,” Bonorris said. “It’s always good to race hard and do well on your own course, so we were really happy with that.”
With the fast start to their season, the Harvard lightweights are looking forward to continued improvement and tough competition down the line.
“We saw some more results today from other teams in the league,” Bonorris said. “It’s very clear that the competition is really tight this year, really strong. I’d say it’s anybody’s race, anybody’s season. It’s exciting, we’ve got a lot of youth in our boat, and each week we’re getting a lot better. We’re making the improvements to prove that we can be a championship crew in the weeks to come.”
