Radcliffe Crew Readies for Sprints

Tomford emphasized that focus and discipline are imperative for success.

"You really have to focus on your own boat and get tunnel vision," she said.


Lightweights Look to Regain Title

The lightweight eight has also put together a banner year. Always a power in the region, Radcliffe is poised to win its second national title in three years.

"We've really come together as a boat," Rebecca Marks said. "We've settled into a line-up and have several moves we can count on for a strong race."

The lightweight division is smaller, and will be decided in only one race. Radcliffe faces Princeton, UVA, and Wisconsin. Princeton is the favored boat, with the remaining crews evenly ranked among national polls.

Radcliffe has squared off against UVA twice this year, losing by .6 seconds each time.

"We've picked up speed since then," Rebecca Marks said. "With four boats, anything can happen."
