Tigers Retain Childs Cup and Class of 1975 Cup


By Greg Hughes - Posted on 10 April 2012

The Tigers posted some solid results on Lake Carnegie this past weekend despite some very challenging conditions on the water.  The Open Women met up with Harvard, Cornell for the 1975 Cup and Columbia joined in this year as a guest.  The Tigers won the 1V8, 2V8, 3V8 and V4A.  In the 1V8, the Tigers finished about 5 seconds ahead of a very tightly bunched pack to retain the Class of 1975 Cup.  Full results from the racing can be found HERE.  The GoPrincetonTigers.com recap of the racing can be found HERE.  Video of the races can be found HERE.  The Open Women will race at home again this coming weekend when they meet up with Yale and guest USC for the Eisenberg Cup.

Following the women's racing, the Heavy Men met up with Columbia and Penn for the 101st running of the Childs Cup.  The Tigers posted solid wins in the 1V, 2V and 1F races, while the Tiger 3V finished 2nd in the 2V race.  The Tiger 1V retained the Childs Cup with their win, and Princeton now moves into the lead for all-time Childs Cup wins with 45 to Penn's 44.  Full results from the racing can be found HERE.  The GoPrincetonTigers.com race recap can be found HERE.  Video of the races can be found HERE.  Tom Nowak's Photos from the Childs Cup racing can be found HERE.  The Heavy Men will head to Boston this coming weekend to meet up with Harvard and MIT for the Compton Cup.

Meanwhile, the Light Women travelled to Lewisville, PA to meet up with Bucknell.  In a great battle, the 1V fell to a strong Bucknell crew by a little less than a length, while the Light Women's novice crew fell to the Bucknell Open Women's novice boat by a little over a boatlength.  Full results from the racing can be found HERE.  The GoPrincetonTigers.com race recap can be found HERE.  The Light Women will be in action this coming weekend down in Camden, NJ at the Knecht Cup.
