CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Harvard heavyweight and lightweight rowers battled the elements over the weekend to take part in the 45th Head of the Charles on the Charles River. Highlights from the event include two top eight finishes by the heavyweights in the championship four and a third-place finsih by the lightweight varsity eight and a fourth-place finish by the lightweight freshman eight in the club event.

The lightweight freshman eight finished fourth overall in the men’s club eight behind heavyweight crews from Yale and Boston University. The Crimson finished just eight seconds behind the winning Yale boat but a buoy violation added to their time and pushed them down to fourth. Two heavyweight boats competed in the club eights with the varsity entry taking seventh and the freshman boat finishing 13th.

In the lightweight men’s eight, the Crimson finished third, 11th and 20th overall. Harvard’s varsity eight was second among collegiate crews and finished 0.08 seconds behind the winning boat from the New York Athletic Club.

The Crimson heavyweight varsity eight split into two fours for the championship event and finished third and eighth overall. Harvard had three boats compete in the championship eights. The top Crimson entry was seventh among U.S. colleges.

Two coaches also took part in the weekend’s actives as lightweight freshman coach Linda Muri won the senior-master women’s eight as a member of Etats Unis and Harry Parker, the Stone Family Head Coach for Harvard Crew, was 13th in the senior-veterans men’s single.
