The Crimson (5-0) defeated four top-10 teams in two regattas separated by one day and more than 300 miles. On Saturday in Ithaca, N.Y., Harvard won four of five races against No. 6 Cornell and No. 8 Penn. The varsity eight won by 11 seconds, while the second varsity eight and both freshman eights registered victories.
Harvard returned home to sweep five races from No. 5 Georgetown and No. 9 Saint Joseph's. The varsity eight beat the second-place Hoyas by 5.7 seconds and finished 32 seconds ahead of the Hawks. The other Crimson boats cruised to wins by more than 11 seconds each.
Harvard finished more than 12 seconds ahead of the rest of the varsity eight field as part of a four-race sweep of the Big Green and Engineers last season on the Charles River. The Dartmouth varsity edged MIT by just six-tenths of a second for second place.
Last season's win was Harvard's 46th in the 55-year history of the Biglin Bowl regatta. MIT won the inaugural race and has captured the trophy four other times since. Dartmouth has four titles and has alternated wins with Harvard over the last four years.
