NEW HAVEN, Conn. – After opening the spring season with two straight road trips, the Yale women’s crew finally gets to race on the friendly waters of the Housatonic River on Saturday. The Bulldogs, ranked fourth in this week’s CRCA-US Rowing poll, host No. 20 Dartmouth and Boston University beginning at 8:30 a.m. at Gilder Boathouse. The Class of 1985 Cup will be at stake in the varsity eight race.

Yale overcame injuries and illness to have a successful weekend in Ithaca, N.Y. The Bulldogs won four of five races, including the varsity, second varsity and varsity four, against Cornell and Syracuse on Friday, and then disposed of seventh-ranked Michigan State and Buffalo on Saturday. Despite the wins, Yale fell three spots in the national poll.

Dartmouth’s varsity eight is undefeated. The Big Green has victories over Tennessee, Louisville, Northeastern, Rhode Island and Boston College. Boston University competed at the Dale England Cup in Bloomington, Ind., last weekend.

Yale has won the Class of 1985 Cup in each of the last 10 years. Last year on the Charles River, the Bulldogs cruised to nearly five-second over Dartmouth. BU was third.

Yale’s heavyweight crew will be racing Dartmouth on Saturday as well.
