Tech's Lightweight Crew Competes in Two Events on Saturday

OVERPECK PARK, N.J. – On a busy, sunny Saturday, the MIT men's lightweight crew team competed in two separate events. At the Geiger Cup in New Jersey, Tech entered three boats in the 2,000m race against host Columbia University and Cornell University. Later on in the day, the Engineers traveled to Connecticut for the Joy Cup against Yale University.

At the Geiger Cup, Tech's Varsity 8 boat completed the course with a time of 6:44.3, behind Columbia with its 6:22.6 in second and Cornell in 6:19.3 in first place. In the second Varsity 8, it was Columbia who was first this time, clocking a 6:27.9. Cornell finished in second with a time of 6:31.4 and MIT was third in 6:52.0.

In MIT's final race, the third Varsity 8, the Engineers were third in 6:55.8, Columbia came in second in 6:18.1 and Cornell took over as the winner, once again, with a time of 6:16.1.

Over at the Joy Cup, Tech's Varsity 8 was second with a time of 5:38.31, finishing a few seconds after Yale, who completed the course in 5:31.31. The Bulldogs took the top two spots in the second Varsity 8 race, clocking times of 5:40.51 and 5:46.84, while MIT was third in 5:57.03. In the third Varsity 8 event, the Cardinal and Gray were second with a 6:11.74 and Yale was first, once again, with a 6:03.41.

Next Saturday, April 26, MIT will travel to Philadelphia to face UPenn and Drexel University on Schuykill River.
