Yankee Cup

It looks like the Yankee Cup will have some good lightweight races as press releases from both UMass and URI mention their lightweights. The UMass press release lists crews for both an eight and a four (coming from the eight). The URI release lists the light eight and goes on to describe it as "another strong lightweight 8, similar to the boat that won Atlantic 10's and ECAC's two years ago." Of course, no one describes their boats as slow, but this statement shows that URI recognizes and values the success they had a few years ago and has some focus on lightweights. I was previously uncertain if there would be lightweight races at the Yankee Cup.
