Yale, Brown Battle For Nat & Anne Case Cup
NEW HAVEN, Conn. – The final regular season race of the season is a big one for the Yale women's crew. The Bulldogs, ranked ninth in this week's CRCA/US Rowing national poll, face No. 6 Brown in what has developed into one of the top rivalries in the nation in recent years. The first race is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. The teams will be battling for the Nat & Anne Case Cup.
"We love to race Brown. They are worthy adversaries," said Yale head coach Will Porter. "We look forward to another opportunity to cover the distance to the best of our ability."
The Bulldogs won three of four races against No. 13 Radcliffe last weekend in Boston. Brown is coming off an impressive performance last Saturday in Providence. The Bears swept Cornell and Columbia.
Yale edged Brown in the varsity eight last year, but the Bears won the other four races to capture the Nat & Anne Case Cup.
