HOW IT HAPPENED – V8:

- MIT had a rough start but bounced back with a great middle 1,000 meters. Unfortunately it would not be enough as Harvard won in 6:29.9, followed by Dartmouth (6:39.9), and then the Engineers (6:45.2).

HOW IT HAPPENED – 2V8:

- The Cardinal and Gray had a very strong first 1,500 meters but Dartmouth put together a final sprint that saw it nip MIT at the finish line by two-tenths of a second (6:50.5 – 6:50.7). Harvard won the race by a comfortable 23-second margin.
