In the Fall
The Crimson captured its first win in the Head of the Charles lightweight eights event since 1975 and sixth overall victory in the race Oct. 21 in Boston. The first-place finish gave Harvard its 41st overall medal, which later became 42 after the Radcliffe lightweight's victory, in the history of the Head of the Charles. Harvard's boat rowed the three-mile Charles River route in 14:35.71, well ahead of its closest competitor. USRowing, which placed second, was nearly 12 seconds off Harvard's pace and Princeton was a distant third in 14:58.24. Yale was fifth at 14:59.70

Last Season
Harvard completed a perfect collegiate season with the program's eighth national championship in 2012, winning the grand final in course-record time at the Intercollegiate Rowing Association National Championships. The Crimson held off Dartmouth by nearly a second and blew away the IRA men's lightweight course record by three seconds with a time of 5:33.059 to put the perfect finish on a collegiate campaign that included a 9-0 dual record, Eastern and Ivy League championships and a course record at Princeton. 

Up Next
The Crimson will see Penn and Cornell in its first Ivy League action of the season April 6 in Philadelphia, followed by Dartmouth and MIT on April 13.
