April 12, 2008

DERBY, Conn. - The Yale women's crew team retained possession of the Class of 1985 Cup by defeating Boston University and Dartmouth on Saturday on the Housatonic River. The Bulldogs varsity eight, which is ranked second in the nation, finished the 2000-meter course in 6:35.5, nearly nine seconds ahead of second-place Boston University (6:44.3). Dartmouth was third in 6:47.8.

Yale also won the second varsity eight, finishing with a time of 6:49.8. Dartmouth (6:55.4) was second followed by BU (7:08.5).

In the varsity four race, the Bulldogs cruised to a nearly 16-second win. Yale crossed the finish line in 7:40.8. Dartmouth was second in 7:56.2 and Boston University came in third at 8:02.8.

The Big Green won both the second novice four and novice eight races, while Yale captured the third varsity four.

"It was a beautiful day on the Housatonic, and I thought we rowed well in our varsity crews," said Yale head coach Will Porter. "Our freshman crews need to find more boat speed, and I am certain they will work hard in that direction. Boston University and Dartmouth are both quality programs with good athletes."
