In a race that was dominated by Princeton, the Lions’ heavyweights lost their battle for second place to Penn and placed last in this weekend’s Childs Cup regatta. Columbia’s time of 6 minutes, 42.50 seconds was just a couple of seconds behind Penn’s 6:40.60, while Princeton’s varsity eights took first with a time of 6:27.30. The Lions’ freshman eights also finished last, with a time of 6:37.80. Columbia did not participate in the second varsity eight race. While the heavyweight boats struggled against Penn and Princeton in the race, the lightweight varsity eights pulled out an upset victory versus Navy. The Lions defeated the Midshipmen 6:30.20 to 6:44.40, although none of the other lightweight boats was able to take first in its event. The lightweights will compete in the Dodge Cup this weekend, while the heavyweights will compete in the Blackwell Cup.
