More Weekend Racing

On a sunny, warm fall day, with a light breeze, Lawrence University defeated Marquette and Northern Michigan at the Tail of the Fox in Wisconsin. The victory came in the light four and all three boats were within 30 seconds.

At the Textile River Regatta, MIT finished second in the light fours event, but first among college boats (first place CRI was crewed at least in part by graduated rowers). UMass, MIT B, and Brandeis followed, with a rather large spread among the boats. As a reader noted, thanks to the new NCAA rule which doesn't allow college and junior rowers to row in the same race (I'll hit that one later), MIT and other college crews were unable to race in the light eight event.

On a beautiful day in Skokie, Northwestern and Washington University raced light fours in the North Shore Channel Challenge. Northwestern beat Wash U. by 41 seconds (and a Wash U. 2V boat by more).

PLEASE hit the issue about the new NCAA a junior lightweight the rule has complicated our head racing season greatly...I'm sure many others are eager to hear what you have to say!
