Last Time Out
The top three collegiate lightweight crews took to the Charles River April 21 and the No. 2-ranked Harvard-Radcliffe varsity eight emerged as the strongest of the day. The Black and White won with open water on No. 1 Stanford, the reigning national champions, No. 3 Princeton and No. 10 Boston University during the Charles River Lightweight Invite. Radcliffe also won the second varsity event on the windy Charles.
