Yale To Race Four Eights
NEW HAVEN, Conn. – The Yale women's crew races one more time this fall. The Bulldogs will have four eights at Sunday's Princeton's Chase. The women's eight is scheduled to go off at 11 a.m.
"The Princeton Chase is a much better regatta than the Head of the Charles for colleges," said Yale head coach Will Porter. "It is a clean course with very few turns and only one bridge. We enjoy racing at Princeton on their man-made lake. It is perfect for rowing."
The Bulldogs had a successful day at the Head of the Charles. The varsity eight was the second fastest collegiate crew in the championship eight, while Yale's second eight and four also raced well.
"We are continuing to train with an eye on the spring," Porter said. "These fall races are a great way to break up the monotony of training and let us size up the competition."
The Bulldogs are tentatively scheduled to open the spring season against the University of Texas in March.
