Crew Prepares for Eastern Sprints

Harvard sports fans do not typically get to see their teams in the top ranks in the country. But Harvard and Radcliffe crew fans do.

The Harvard and Radcliffe crews leave home water this weekend to race in the ERAC and the EAWRC sprints, where all the crews are well-positioned for high finishes.

Harvard Heavyweights


Harvard travels to Lake Quinsigamond in Worcester, Mass. to compete in the Eastern Rowing Association Championship on Sunday.

The No. 3 Varsity eight enters the regatta seeded behind Brown and Princeton with a record of 5-1. Its season so far has included a victory over Brown, the defending Eastern champion, and a tough loss to Princeton by a margin of 2.6 seconds.

The Crimson benefits from the experience of four returning varsity rowers: senior stroke Sam Brooks, senior captain Jason Craw, junior Hugo Mallison, and junior Wayne Pommen.

The freshman boat is seeded first after its 7-1 season, its only setback a two-secoond loss to Princeton on Apr. 21.

The 2V and 3V boats are both seeded seventh and the 2F boat is seeded second.
