April 11, 2008

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - The Class of 1985 Cup will be at stake when Dartmouth, Boston University and Yale race on Saturday on the Housatonic River in Derby. The Bulldogs' varsity eight improved on their season-opening performance last weekend by cruising to a nearly 10-second victory over Cornell. Head coach Will Porter has been pleased with his team's development.

"This is one of the hardest working teams I have ever coached," he said. "They love mixing it up, and as a young group they are getting better and better every day. They are starting to settle into their line ups and finding more speed every outing. It's exciting to work with them. They are engaged and eager to get better. Practice is fun. Everyday I look forward to seeing what's next."

Yale's varsity remained second in this week's CRCA-US Rowing national poll. California is first and is one of three Pac-10 schools ranked in the top 10. Washington is fourth and USC is fifth.

Dartmouth is receiving votes. The Big Green's varsity finished second in a race with Northeastern and Boston College last weekend. Dartmouth finished just 1.9 seconds behind first-place Northeastern. The Big Green's second varsity, novice eight and varsity four all won their races.

Boston University's varsity eight has wins over Navy, George Washington and Syracuse on the season.

Yale's heavyweight men will be rowing Dartmouth as well. Action at the Gilder Boathouse gets under way at 8 a.m.
