The race for the Junior Varsity was the most hotly contested of the day. At the halfway point, the Cardinal had only a narrow margin but was able to press the lead into a win by 3 seconds.
The Freshmen raced against an eager and athletic Davis frosh crew. At the halfway point, the freshmen had only a slight advantage but were able to extend their advantage into an even greater margin over the second half of the race. The freshmen also had an opportunity to fit in all of the racing that they could, concluding the day with a convincing win over the spirited first year St Mary's crew.
