Mid-Atlantic Collegiate Crew Championships Results

The MACCC results are finally out, and Duquesne and Virginia Tech won their events. In the eight, Virginia Tech defeated Penn State by 7 seconds. This is a nice win for VT as they head into a fairly wide open Dad Vail, where Penn State will get another shot at them.

Duquesne won the light four by 4 seconds over George Mason, who was followed 2 seconds later by CMU. Susquehanna trailed the field. This is a big win for the Dukes, who lost to George Mason at Knecht. Obviously the boat is getting faster, and it too will have some nice momentum heading into Dad Vail. For CMU and GMU, the loss was enough to cause some worry, but not enough to cause panic. Heading into one of the most significant Dad Vail light four events in memory, all boats know they have serious racing ahead, and no one can take anything for granted.
