Navy Sweeps Bulldogs

April 2, 2005

Mercer County, N.J. - Navy won all four of today's races against the Bulldogs in Mercer County, N.J.

In the varsity boat, the Midshipmen pulled out the win by three seconds with a time of 6:28. Things were even closer in the second varsity race, with Navy winning by less than one second.

The Midshipmen were victorious in both the third varsity and the novice 8, winning by 30 and 11 seconds respectively

The strong headwind proved challenging for both squads, making waters so rough that the teams were unable to hold the freshman four race.
