Tigers Win Chase!
The varsity heavies had a solid showing at the Chase this past weekend, winning the 8+, the 2x, 2-, and 1x, and finishing 2nd in the 4+. The frosh also had a strong day, winning the freshman 8+ more than 24 seconds. It was a good day for the rest of the boathouse as well. The light men, open women and light women also won their varsity 8 events, making this the first time in over five years that Princeton has won all of the varsity 8+ events at the Chase. You can find the full results from the weekend here:
Tom Nowak and Fred Klien were here once again taking photos throughout the day. Many of the pics are now up on our website and you can find them here:
Our resident video man Doug Myers was also in action this weekend and he is putting the finishing touches on a great highlight video from the racing. We mounted small cameras on our varsity 8+'s again this weekend and will have some great footage to share with you very soon. We will have it posted right on the front page of the site once it's ready and I will be sure to let you know when it's done.
The weekend also marked the close of Pull for Hope, our boathouse-wide fundraising effort to support breast cancer awareness. I am very pleased to announce that, thanks to the support provided by many of you, our teams successfully raised $14,850 in the fight against breast cancer. In recognition of our efforts, all of the Princeton rowers raced in pink hats at the Princeton Chase this year and you will notice them in all of our pictures and video. Thanks to all of you that lent us a hand with the effort.
The Chase marked the end of our fall competitive season. We will now move into small boats in preparation for he Stuyve Pell '53 inter-squad small boats races held just before the Thanksgiving break. After that, winter training begins!
Thanks again for all of your support this fall. It was great seeing so many of you here in Princeton this past weekend for the Chase and I want to thank you for coming in to watch us race. I will be back in touch with more news soon!
