Just back from Augusta, GA and a regatta that would make the
Vails look fair to anyone. Lane 4 at Augusta (particularly
after 5 months of tremendous rainfall) is a very considerable
advantage; in addition, a floating start was used.
Despite this, in many events advancement to the finals was by
determined not by heat winner but by the fastest 4 times...
Anyway, this shouldn't sound like sour grapes because ***ia
did win the overall points tophy and I'm not complaining.
A few interesting results:
Boston University WON, defeating the Universities of Victoria,
Miami, and ***ia, not to mention the U.S. NATIONAL TEAM.
Yep, Hartmut was there to see his women win the two heats
before going down to B.U. in the final. To be fair, B.U. was
in lane 4, but the NT catches were not what I would call
Dartmouth convincingly beat Princeton handily, princeton
turning in a time of 7:58 (yep, 7:58). Missed dartmouth's
time, buit they looked solid.
Dartmouth's lightweight freshmen won this strongly. Didn't
catch the times, but in heats it was:
UCentral Fla. 7:55
Va. & Bucknell 8:07.0 (tie)
Didn't catch the winner nor the order of finish, but it's
interesting to note that Temple DID NOT make it to the final.
Temple's JV cruised (30 strokes/m at 1000) to victory over
second place ***ia.

Sorry all these are lacking in detail, but somebody has to
carru the shoes and load the trailer...
