Stanford Crew Finishes 10th At IRA Regatta

June 7, 2008

CHERRY HILLS, N.J. - On a humid Saturday on the East Coast, the Stanford men's and lightweight rowing teams turned in strong outings on the final day of the IRA Regatta. The men's squad took 10th place overall in the team competition, while individually, the varsity eight boat captured fifth place in its Grand Final and the freshman eight took first in the Petite Final. The Stanford lightweight varsity eight also turned in a third-place outing in its Grand Final.

The men's varsity eight boat placed fifth in the Grand Final, posting a final time of 5:43.324. The Cardinal were little over 12 seconds back of champion Wisconsin, and finished third among the Pac-10 schools in the race, as Washington and California finished second and third, respectively.

In the freshman eight Petite Final, the Cardinal men out-rowed their East Coast competition, capturing the race, and seventh place overall, with a time of 5:46.967, 2.597 seconds better than runner-up Wisconsin.

Stanford's lightweight varsity eight took third in Saturday's Grand Final, finishing as the top West Coast boat with a final time of 6:42.056. That mark was slightly under seven seconds back of the winning boat from Wisconsin, and 2.439 behind runner-up Georgetown.
