Some Saturday Results

Dayton raced its lightweight eight in a dual match against Duquesne, winning the 2V race over its own heavy 2V and the Duquesne 2V. Dayton's time was also faster than the Duquesne 1V by 26 seconds. Time comparisons don't really work especially because this was probably a floating start, but 26 seconds means the lights were faster.

UCF raced Nova Southeastern and Rollins in what was a matchup of the UCF lights against heavyweight boats. UCF finished second, five seconds off of the Nova Southeastern heavies and way ahead of Rollins and the Nova Southeastern B boat.

In Philadelphia, the Murphy Cup held a six boat lightweight varsity four final, with Pittsburgh winning over Carnegie Mellon by 5 seconds and Loyola by 14. Villanova, Lehigh, and Susqehanna also raced. In the varsity eight final St. Joe's hammered Miami of Ohio by over a minute. St. Joe's should feel good with a big win like that after a tough race against Georgetown last week. Princeton's lightweight frosh won the heavyweight freshmen eight event by 10 seconds over 14 other boats. Navy and Lehigh were second and third.
