The Black and White drops varsity eight race.

DERBY, Conn. – The No. 16 Harvard-Radcliffe varsity eight crew fell to No. 11 Yale Saturday morning on the Housatonic River, while the 2V8 and V4 boats each picked up a win over the Bulldogs.

In the marquee matchup, Yale bested Radcliffe by just under five seconds as the Bulldogs finished in 6:12.1. The Black and White's final push would not be enough, clocking a time of 6:17.0.

Yale wins its third-straight Nathaniel H. Case Cup and 19th overall. 

The second varsity earned a three-seat win over the Bulldogs, finishing one second ahead of the home squad. The Black and White crossed in 6:23.9, before Yale's time of 6:24.9.

Radcliffe's varsity four boat also earned a narrow victory, crossing the finish line in 7:06.0, just 2.5 seconds ahead of the Bulldogs (7:08.5).

The Bulldogs earned the advantage in the V4B and 3V races by open water.
