EARC Sprints Results

WORCESTER, Mass. – Penn’s heavyweight varsity eight boat – seeded No. 10 entering this weekend’s EARC Sprints Regatta – finished 11th overall after a fourth place row in the Petite Final.

After a fourth place finish in its heat in the morning, the Quakers took fourth in a tightly-bunched Petite Final in the afternoon. The first four boats to cross the line in the Petite Final were all within 4.243 seconds of each other, Wisconsin reaching the line first in 5:35.998. Second-place Columbia was 2.240 seconds ahead of the Quakers and Navy just edged the Red and Blue was 1.431 seconds ahead of the Quakers. Penn was well clear of fifth-place Dartmouth which crossed 7.138 seconds after the Quakers.

After a fifth place finish in the morning heats saw the Second Varsity not only miss the Grand Final but the Petite Final as well, the 2V responded in fine fashion in the Third Final, dominating the field to win by 4.473 seconds. Penn’s winning time of 5:50.562 would have finished fourth in the Petite Final but instead gave the Quakers an open-water win over George Washington.

The Quakers will head to Ithaca on May 23 to row for the Madeira Cup with Cornell before rowing in the IRA Championships in Mercer, N.J. from May 30-June 1.
