WORCESTER, Mass. – The No. 4 Harvard men's lightweight crew team posted a fourth-place finish in the Jobe Cup team standings, as well as the varsity eight competition at the 2018 Eastern Sprints Championship on Lake Quisigamond in Worcester, Massachusetts Sunday.

The Crimson's top finish of the day was produced by the fifth varsity eight, which placed second, two seconds shy of Navy.

The Crimson's third varsity eight earned itself a third-place finish in both its morning heat and the grand final.
