The expanded race format of Sprints is also a factor for the lightweight crews.
"You have to keep the focus on your boat," Rebecca Marks said, "but it's nothing we haven't done before."
Despite the different formats for varsity and lightweight crews, Radcliffe teams are united in their pursuit of excellence.
"Lights and heavies are very supportive of each other," Rebecca Marks said. "We respect each other's strengths and have excellent team cohesion."
With strong team chemistry and impressive rankings, Radcliffe is ready to take on the region's best this weekend.
"The slate is cleared," Tomford said. "You never know what can happen on one particular day, especially this year. We have a great shot at winning it all."
