EARC Sprints Results

WORCESTER, Mass. – The push upward continued for No. 11 Penn as the Quakers finished 10th in the Varsity Eight at the 2013 EARC Sprints. The finish is the best for Penn since a ninth-place finish in 2007 and is in an increase of one from last year’s 11th-place finish.

After a fourth place finish in its heat, the Varsity Eight finished in a similar spot in the Petite Final in a time of 6:19.027. The Quakers needed a strong finish to hold of Syracuse which was fifth in 6:20.442. Navy won the Petite Final in 6:03.361. Harvard won the Varsity Eight Grand Final in 5:56.721.

Penn’s four, rowing in the 3V Four race, was victorious for Penn’s first medal of any kind at Sprints since 2006 when Penn won two first-place medals. The Quakers’ four was dominant, beating second-place George Washington by 15 seconds. Penn crossed first in 7:00.503, the Colonials in 7:15.503. MIT was third in 7:28.283.

The varsity freshman eight was third in a fast heat, crossing in 6:18.656. Brown was first, 5.63 seconds ahead of Penn and all four boats were within 6.28 seconds of each other. The Red and Blue’s third-place finish in its heat qualified the boat for the Grand Final. Last year, Penn was fifth in its heat and then rowed to a 13th-place finish with a win in the third final. In the Grand Final for the first time since 2006 – when the novice boat won the title – the Quakers were fifth in 6:37.541, clear of Navy. Harvard was victorious in 6:12.384.

The Red and Blue will host Cornell in the Madeira Cup on May 24 before heading to Sacramento for the IRA Championships May 31-June 2.
