Tigers Retain Three Trophies in Weekend Racing


By Greg Hughes - Posted on 24 April 2012

This past Saturday, the Tigers retained three of the four trophies they raced for on the weekend.  Here on Lake Carnegie, the Light Women started the day off with a solid win over Georgetown to retain the Class of 2006 Cup.  Full results can be found HERE.  The GoPrincetonTigers.com race recap can be found HERE.  Video from the racing can be found HERE.

Following the Light Women, the Light Men met up with Penn for the Wood-Hammond Cup and Georgetown joined in as a guest.  In the Varsity race, the Tigers fell to Georgetown by a little under a length, but finished open water ahead of Penn to retain the Wood-Hammond Cup.  The Tigers won the 2V, 1F and 2F races.  Full results can be found HERE.  The GoPrincetonTigers.com race recap can be found HERE.  Video from the racing can be found HERE.

Meanwhile, the Open Women travelled to Philadelphia, where they met up with Dartmouth and Penn.  Princeton won all of the day's races and the 1V win returned the Class of 1984 Plaque to the boathouse for another year.  Full results can be found HERE.  The GoPrincetonTigers.com race recap can be found HERE

The Heavy Men travelled up to Ithaca to meet up with Cornell and Yale for the Carnegie Cup.  The Tiger 1V came up just short in a tight battle with Cornell for the Carnegie Cup while Yale was 3rd.  This marks the 7th straight year that the Carnegie Cup has stayed with the home team.  Full results can be found HERE.  The GoPrincetonTigers.com race recap can be found HERE

All four squads will be in action this coming weekend for the final weekend of the regular season.  The Light Men will travel to Derby for the HYP.  After two weeks on the road, the Heavy Men will race at home this weekend against Brown for the Content Cup.  The Open Women will race at home against Tennessee, and the Light Women will race at home against Harvard.
