April 21 Race Results, April 28 Race Preview

Last weekend the Ithaca Crews raced in Worcester, MA, on the Lake Quinsigamond course. There was a moderate tailwind resulting in some chop in the last 1000 meters, and crosswinds at the start made for tricky alignments. Ithaca’s mens crews raced three eights (1V, 2V, and 3V, with novices mixed in the 2V and 3V) fast competition coming from Trinity and WPI. The women’s events included heats and finals for the 1V and 2V, with finals only for the 3V and Novice 8. Ithaca’s 1V and 2V women won their heats, with the 1V going on to win the final, along with a victory for the Novice 8.

We are happy to report that Erik Frid ’14 placed 2nd overall out of 40 competing in the Spring National Team Speed Order competition for men’s singles on Mercer Lake, New Jersey. Over the 3 days of racing, he qualified from the time trial for 40 entries, then placed 2nd in his heat to advance, then 3rd in the semifinal that same day, to make the grand final. Second place in the grand final is a big step toward this year’s national team and World Championships – congrats to Erik!

Coming next week, results from Saturday and preview of Liberty League and States Championship Regattas.
