Sophomore Tom Nesel of the Harvard lightweight crew is the COOP Athlete of the Week, for the week ending May 2. On May 1, the Crimson defeated No. 1 Princeton and No. 4 Yale to claim the Goldwaith Cup for the first time in four years with a time of 5:40.7, as well as the Vogel Cup for overall team supremacy. The varsity eight cruised to its first undefeated dual season since 1997, going 10-0 on the year. Nesel switched into the varsity eight midway through the week after a varsity rower got injured. With two practices between the switch and the HYP regatta - the biggest race of the dual season - Nesel had to adjust to a new crew and switch from port to the starboard side for the race.
