No. 3 Virginia, No. 12 Radcliffe Race Yale Saturday

April 24, 2008

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - The second-ranked Yale varsity eight will get another stiff test on Saturday when No. 3 Virginia and No. 12 Radcliffe come to the Gilder Boathouse. The Bulldogs are undefeated this season. Yale's second varsity and varsity boats are also unbeaten this spring.

The Bulldogs are coming off an impressive performance last Saturday when they defeated then No. 12 Tennessee and then No. 4 Princeton on Lake Carnegie in New Jersey.

Virginia claimed its ninth consecutive Atlantic Coast Conference championship last Saturday. The Cavaliers' varsity eight, whose only loss came to top-ranked California, was named the ACC's Crew of the Year after claiming the league title in an ACC Rowing Championships record time of 6:22.0. UVA also won the second varsity and varsity four races.

Radcliffe's varsity eight went undefeated last Saturday in the Charles River Challenge. The Crimson defeated Dartmouth, Syracuse, Texas and Notre Dame.

Yale and Radcliffe will be racing for the Nathaniel Case Cup. The Bulldogs have won the cup in each of the last four years.

"This week will be the toughest test for us to date. Radcliffe is always a battle and UVA is the highest ranked team we see in our regular schedule," said Yale head coach Will Porter. "Both are big, strong, talented and very well coached. I have a tremendous amount of respect for both Liz O'Leary and Kevin Sauer and the programs they have built."
