No. 2 Bulldogs Race No. 4 Princeton, No. 12 Tennessee Saturday

April 17, 2008

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Yale's varsity eight, which is ranked second in the nation, faces its toughest test of the spring season thus far when it races No. 4 Princeton and No. 12 Tennessee on Saturday on New Jersey's Lake Carnegie. The Bulldogs' varsity eight, second varsity eight and varsity four are all undefeated but will be racing away from home for the first time this spring.

Yale and Princeton will be competing for the Eisenberg Cup. The Bulldogs won the Cup last year for the first time in 19 years.

Princeton's varsity eight also is undefeated. The Tigers opened the season by beating seventh-ranked Michigan State and No. 11 Brown and also have wins over Radcliffe, Cornell, Rutgers and Columbia.

Tennessee's varsity eight finished second in a race with Michigan and Ohio State last Saturday. The Wolverines placed first, just two-tenths of a second ahead of the Lady Vols.

"We are slowly finding more speed each week," said Yale head coach Will Porter. "This will be our first real challenge, and I am curious to see how we respond. Princeton is a great crew and under-ranked nationally. If they are undefeated in the EAWRC, which history has shown to be the fastest league in the country, they are flying."
