CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Backed by beautiful weather and a strong head wind, the women's openweight crew managed one of its best races of the season en route to a narrow victory over the University of New Hampshire. Splitting 7:27.16, the Engineers squeezed ahead of the Wildcats, who crossed the finish in 7:29.25.
The Engineers suffered a tough loss on Saturday against Rhode Island and Boston College, before rallying for the big win on Sunday. Stroke Candace Jantzen-Marson missed Saturday's racing, but provided a big spark in her return to the boat yesterday. The varsity eight received an added boost from frosh lightweight coxswain Ellen Chen, who filled in admirably for Christina Glazier and guided MIT to the win.
