PRINCETON, N.J.—Virginia rowing’s Varsity Eight picked up a win at the Princeton Chase on Lake Carnegie in Princeton, N.J., on Sunday (Oct. 27). Four of the Cavaliers’ six crews earned top-five finishes.
Virginia’s top crew picked up the win in the Varsity Eight race in a time of 14:34.417, almost 11 seconds ahead of Yale (14:45.063). Princeton was third in 14:50.893, but Cavalier crews occupied fourth and fifth in 15:03.590 and 15:03.677, respectively. Virginia’s fourth entry in the race placed 22nd (15:42.983) out of the 52 boats that completed the race.
“The Varsity Eight earned a great win today amongst a big and talented field,” UVa head coach Kevin Sauer said. “I thought our team showed great depth also getting fourth, fifth and 22nd in the varsity race and a close second in the novice race. We’re looking forward to three weeks of training before hosting the Rivanna Romp.”
In the Novice Eight race, UVa was edged by Princeton, 15:51.963 to 15:53.229. Georgetown was third over 40 seconds behind in 16:37.045, while Penn and Boston University rounded out the top five.
