CAMBRIDGE, Mass. The MIT men's heavyweight crew team faced Trinity College, Colgate University and the University of Rhode Island on a clear-skied Sunday morning on the Charles River. The Engineers entered two 8's and a varsity 4 boat in the 2k race.

URI was not far behind the Engineers with its time of 6:20.2, while Colgate crossed the line in fourth place with a time of 6:24.2. The second varsity 8 race, which featured the Cardinal and Gray's JV boat, came in third place with a 6:25. Trinity, once again, was first, completing the event in 6:15.1 and URI was second with a 6:16.8.

To wrap up the day, the Engineers competed in the varsity 4 race, coming in second place out of the three teams. Trinity won its third race of the day with a 7:10.3, MIT was second with 7:16 and Colgate was third with a 7:17.3.
