Tech Takes a Terrific Sixth at Owen Trophy

March 26, 2007

ANNAPOLIS, Md. - B-Division skipper Brooks Reed and crews Kim Harrison and Chuck Head finished fourth in their circuit, as MIT came through with its best outing this spring, placing sixth out of 16 teams at the Owen Trophy this past weekend. The trio finished in the top five in five of the 11 rounds, never ranking worse than ninth during the two-day event hosted by the U.S. Naval Academy.

The Engineers held their own in A-Division. Skipper Jack Field and Karlen Ruleman placed eighth among the elite competition, including overall winner Yale University. A pair of third-place slots in the fourth and eighth rounds kept the higher group competitive.

A fading southeast breeze halted the races earlier than usual on Sunday.
