Bulldogs Host Class of '85 Cup

April 7, 2006

The Yale women's crew team will be competing at home Saturday morning for the first time in 2006. The Bulldogs will host Boston University and Dartmouth in the Class of '85 Cup at Gilder Boathouse in Derby.

Yale has won the race in both of the last two years, winning by less than a second in 2005 over BU. The Bulldogs, who climbed to third in the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association poll this week, will be facing lower ranked opponents. BU is ranked 20th after beating George Washington last weekend, while Dartmouth is unranked.

For students wishing to travel to Gilder Boathouse, there will be a supporters bus leaving from outside Yale Station Post Office at 7:30 am tomorrow, returning after the races have concluded.

Race Schedule

8:00 1st Novice
8:30 2nd Varsity
9:00 Varsity
9:30 Women's 3rd Varsity Four
