Harvard edges Yale by 10 seconds in annual Regatta

The Harvard crew team remained perfect in the dual season with a 10-second win over Yale in the 147th Harvard-Yale Regatta Saturday afternoon on the Thames River.

It was the Crimson's, outrowing the Elis by 10 seconds to complete a perfect dual season, their second in a row and third in the last four years.
Here is Dave Borges' story from Saturday's main event.
“These guys are very, very good racers,” 50th-year Harvard coach Harry Parker said of his crew. “Every time they go on the line, they do a good job. And they did today. That was a really very solid row, a very strong effort.”
Harvard finished with a time of 19:41.3 to Yale’s 19:51.2.
“Ten seconds over four miles is not a big margin,” Gladstone pointed out. “I think they got the most out of themselves. I’m really pleased. There was no quit whatsoever.”
Added senior captain Tom Dethlefs: “We rowed a tough race. It’s never fun to lose, but we can hold our heads high.”

In the JV race, Harvard won the JV race with a time of 14:55.5 to Yale’s 15:27.2 and notched the freshman race with a time of 10:25.6 to Yale’s 10:34.1. The freshman race was by far the most interesting of the day, as it was stopped and re-started with about a half-mile to go in the two-mile race due to a severe wake caused by a Coast Guard boat that was supposed to be patrolling the course.
