This past Sunday was the Ivy League Championship for Women’s rowing. Princeton Entered a boat in every event and placed well enough as a team to finish as the top team in the Ivy League. The team trophy was won after a very strong performance from the Tiger’s Varsity 8 where the Tigers finished 7 seconds over second place Yale. The win in the Varsity 8 also served to secure the Ivy League’s automatic bid to the NCAA Championship. While most conferences award their automatic qualification spot to the top team in their conference, the Ivy League has decided to ensure the fastest Varsity 8 is represented at the NCAA Championship. A write-up of Princeton's NCAA qualification can be found HERE.
The Tigers started off the day in strong fashion by winning all of their heats. Complete results of the heats can be found HERE.
Princeton’s Team Championship was helped along by a win in the 3rd Varsity 8 and a string of Bronze Medal finishes in the Varsity B 4+, Varsity 4+ and Second Varsity 8. Results of the finals racing can be found HERE, courtesy of row2k.com. You can also find 500m splits HERE. You can find a run down of the points totals HERE.

This year marked the first time that Freshman were allowed to race in crews other than the Freshman eight. With their entire squad mixed in, the Tigers were entered in the Varsity, Second Varsity, Third Varsity, and Fourth Varsity. In the first final of the day, the Heavyweight Tigers came away with a win in the Fourth Varsity. The Third Varsity narrowly missed the medals dock finishing fourth and just edged out by Navy. The Second Varsity was in a battle with Brown the whole way down the course and crossed the finish line in second place to Brown. The Tiger Varsity finished just off the podium in fourth place to Harvard, Brown and Northeastern. You can find a nice write-up on the day HERE at goprincetontigers.com
On the Lightweight side of things, Princeton came away with some strong finishes in a very tight field of crews.
