The Harvard and Radcliffe crews bid a fond farewell to their departing seniors by turning in solid performances throughout the season. The Radcliffe heavyweights again gained an NCAA berth, and the Harvard heavyweights competed against Yale in the 136th Harvard-Yale Regatta in New London, CT. The Harvard and Radcliffe lightweights participated in the National Championships in Camden, N.J., last week.
The results of NCAAs, the Harvard-Yale Regatta and the National Championships appeared in the June 4 edition of the Crimson.
The Harvard Heavyweight crew faces the Harvard-Yale regatta with a successful season at its back and the title of fastest crew on the Charles.
The Varsity boat (5-1) began the spring racing season with a splash when it upset then-No. 1 Brown by four seconds, sending Harvard into the top ranking. But this standing was short-lived as Princeton caused further upset the following weekend by beating the Harvard boat by 2.3 seconds.
These races set Harvard up for its third seed going into Eastern Sprints, where it raced into second place and second-team All-Ivy honors.
"The Brown race was one of our stronger races," said senior coxswain Jon Cahill. "The best race of the season was at Eastern Sprints."
