- The Lead: In the final home regatta of the season for the MIT women's lightweight rowing team and this year's senior class, the Engineers finished second to Tufts University on Saturday on the Charles River. This marked the first time MIT has rowed against Tufts, which is ranked No. 3 nationally in openweight, this season.
HOW IT HAPPENED:

In the second varsity 8 competition, MIT crossed in a time of 7:45.257, while the varsity 8 crew finished in 7:08.058 to place just over eight seconds behind the boat from Tufts.
- The Engineers are back in action on April 29th as the team travels to the Dad Vail Regatta on the Schuykill River in Philadelphia, Pa. on May 12-13.
