Cup Crazy! Men's Rowing Keeps Baker Cup in Worcester for Tenth Straight Year

Worcester, MA --- WPI men's rowing excelled Sunday, sweeping all of the eights races during a home regatta on Lake Quinsigamond featuring Tufts, Vermont, and Skidmore, Washington College and Amherst.  The victory over Tufts in the varsity eight gave the Crimson and Gray the right to the Baker Cup for the tenth consecutive season. 

Rowing behind a slight tailwind, the varsity eight bested six other boats, breaking the tape in a time of 6:03.50, two seconds ahead of Washington College and four than better the third place Jumbos of Tufts.  

The second varsity eight flexed its muscles, turning in a time of 6:11.40, over 10 seconds better than Washington College, who just edged Tufts for silver.  The third varsity eight continued the Engineer onslaught with a winning time of 6:28.10.  The novice proved to have a flair for the dramatic, edging Vermont by 0.45 seconds (6:50.59 to 6:51.04) to complete the sweep of the eights for the hosts. 

Finally, the varsity made its spring debut, placing third just over seven seconds behind race winner Amherst.          

WPI is back at it next Saturday, hosting Boston College on Lake Quinsigamond for the McCarthy/McGee Challenge Cup.
