OVERPECK PARK, N.J. – MIT's heavyweight crew team competed in the Alumni Cup on a windy, yet sunny, Saturday morning. Tech entered a Varsity 8 and a second Varsity 8 in the event, facing Holy Cross College both times. Another crew was due to race host Columbia University that afternoon, but the race was cancelled due to high wind.
First up for the Engineers was the Varsity 8, which completed the 2,000-meter course with a time of 6:07.2, narrowly edging Holy Cross with its 6:10.0. Later that day, the second Varsity 8 ended up with a 6:59.2, while Holy Cross finished ahead of the Cardinal and Gray with its time of 6:44.3
Next Saturday, MIT will travel to Worcester, Mass. to take part in the Donahue Cup on Lake Quinsigamond.Varsity 8+
