It was a rough weekend for Columbia. Both the heavyweight and lightweight squads had disappointing results in their respective races this weekend. In Boston on Saturday, the heavyweight varsity eights dropped their third-straight cup race when they lost the Doc Lusins Trophy to Boston University. The Terriers finished in 6:02.8, seven seconds better than the Lions’ 6:09.8. Syracuse, who was challenging Boston for the Conlan Cup, bested both teams with a time of 6:01.7. The freshman eights also finished in third. The lightweight squad competed twice this weekend, losing both the Geiger Cup on Saturday and the Subin Cup on Sunday. In Boston on Saturday, Cornell (6:11.4) beat out the Light Blue (6:18.6) and MIT (6:41.4) in the varsity eights race. Columbia also came up short in the second varsity eights and freshman races. The next day in Hanover, N.H., the varsity eights fell again by a narrow margin, finishing 6.2 seconds behind Dartmouth with a time of 5:39.6. While the second varsity eights also fell to the Big Green, the freshman squad defeated Dartmouth’s boat by just 0.7 seconds.
