Third Varsity Eight Victorious For Bulldogs
The second day of the Ivy-Big Ten Double Dual featured a battle of top-10 crews on Belleville Lake. No. 9 Michigan, racing on its home course, managed to win four of five races against No. 5 Yale.
The winning crew for the Bulldogs was the third varsity eight, which posted a time of 7:25.5, more than three seconds faster than the Wolverines (7:28.93).
The varsity eight was a hotly contested race with Michigan edging Yale 6:35.32 to 6:36.09.
Michigan had a wider margin of victory in the second varsity eight, finishing with a time of 6:57.22. The Bulldogs crossed the line in 7:01.83.
The Wolverines also got strong performances in the two fours. Michigan's varsity four topped Yale 7:50.29 to 7:57.93, while in the second varsity four, the Wolverines had a time of 8:01.86 to Yale's 8:14.86.
It was a still a successful two days of racing for the Bulldogs, who swept Michigan State and Indiana on Friday on the first day of the event.
"Today's match up was a tough one," said Will Porter, The Friends of YWC Head Coach of the Bulldogs. "Michigan is good, they are deep and I think they will do well this year. Our racing schedule is very challenging this year. By the end of our regular season we will have seen many fast crews and have raced in many tough races. Today was one of them."
Next up for Yale is the Ivy Invitational next Sunday at Princeton.
"We need to make some changes and reset for a tough weekend ahead," Porter said.
