The Bulldogs won the Ivy Championship in a close battle with Harvard at home this weekend. They also placed sixth at the Thompson Trophy and fifth at the Central Series 4.
Thompson Trophy – Connecticut College: 6th (325 points)
Owen, Mossbacher, and Knapp Trophies for the Ivy Championship – Yale
Team 1: 2nd (83 points)
Team 2: 12th (172 points)
Central Series 4 – Tufts: (5th, 33 points)
At the Thompson, Harvey and Nicolosi dominated A division, winning by thirteen points (nearly 20% better than the next boat). When asked about their success, they kept it simple, attributing their results to good pin starts and not making unforced errors.
Yale’s women’s team took on the Ivy championship regatta at home. They started off strong, leading Harvard by nearly 30 points midway through the event, but a couple of tough races put Harvard within reach, only three points behind the Bulldogs going into the last race. Klingler and Woods defended well against the Harvard offense, beating them in the last race to secure the Ivy League victory. While Yale finished second overall in the event, the winner was Fordham, who does not count for the championship title. The Elis are the 2019 Ivy League champions.
