Bears Reclaim Nat & Anne Case Cup

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Yale ran into one of the hottest crews in the nation on Monday. No. 1 Brown reclaimed the Nat & Anne Case Cup by winning all five races over the No. 11 Bulldogs on the Seekonk River.

The closest race of the day came in the varsity eight where Brown edged Yale 5:54.50 to 5:56.30. It was the Bears' fastest time over 2,000 meters since 2006.

Brown also got a very strong performance from its second varsity eight, which finished with a time of 5:56.90. The Bulldogs crossed the line in 6:09.60.

The Bears won the varsity four 6:41.90 to 6:48.80.
