PRINCETON, N.J. Harvard lightweight crew's Alexander Bonorris and Jeffrey Rogers have accepted invitations to the 2013 Lightweight Men's Under 23 National Team Sweep Camp. The camp will be held in Philadelphia, Pa. and West Windsor, N.J., to determine the lightweight men's four that will compete at the World Rowing Under 23 Championships July 24-28 in Linz, Austria.

Bonorris has been a staple in Harvard's No. 1 ranked varsity eight. The sophomore from Corte Madera, Calif., has rowed stroke and bow during the season as the Crimson enter EARC Sprints this Sunday with an undefeated record.

Rogers, a freshman out of Ocean City, N.J., has been at stroke of the Crimson's first freshman boat throughout the year.

Last year, Harvard's Austin Meyer and teammate Nick Trojan finished fourth in the lightweight men's doubles competition, the best finish for the United States in the history of the event, at the U-23 World Championships in Trakai, Lithuania. Meyer and Trojan rowed under the guidance of Harvard lightweight crew coach Linda Muri.
