'Cliffe Crew Wins Handily, Beating Penn, Princeton


The Radcliffe crew overcame a strong headwind Saturday and topped four teams in winning a regatta on the Charles. Their time for the 1000-meter course was a fast 3:52.

The victory was especially sweet following last week's narrow loss to Vesper, the national champion, particularly since Penn, which placed second Saturday at 3:57, boasts three Vesper members on its crew.

The highly-regarded Princeton boat struggled home third, a whopping 30 seconds behind Penn. The MIT and Williams crews were never in the race.

"We rowed an exceptionally fine race. Penn was rated as one of the fastest boats in the East," Radcliffe coach Gerett Olmsted said yesterday.

Charlotte Crane stroked the 'Cliffe crew, with Martha MacDaniel. Dotty Horns, and Julie Meck at seven, six, and five. The bow four included Judy Levine. Debbie Weil, Sarah Wood, and Cathy Barbash, at four, three, two, and bow respectively.
