Yale Takes on Brown in Season Opener
NEW HAVEN, Conn.- Yale’s heavyweight crews open their season when Brown visits the Gilder Boathouse this Saturday. Five races will take place on the morning of Apr. 3, beginning at 10:30 a.m.
Last year’s encounter with Brown in Providence, R.I., left the Bulldogs empty-handed. The Bears swept all three races: varsity, second varsity and freshman. Yale will race Brown in five events this year: the varsity, second varsity, third varsity and freshman eights, as well as a four.
On the upcoming Brown race, Captain Lucas Spielfogel noted, “There’s no question Brown will be fast. However, history means nothing to us. We will look to beat them.”
Order of Events:
4+ - 10:30 a.m.
3V8 - 10:50 a.m.
F8 - 11:10 a.m.
