Last Time Out
Last week in Ithaca, N.Y., the Crimson lightweight varsity (3-0) pulled away to a 6.3-second win against No. 5 Cornell and No. 9 Penn. The freshman eight also placed first, while both of Harvard's freshman fours topped the Big Red. The second and third varsity eights placed second, ahead of the Quakers.

Last Season
Harvard defeated runner-up Dartmouth by 1.9 seconds and MIT by 29.5 to take the Biglin Bowl last year. The Crimson took four out of five races on the windy Charles, winning the second and third varsity and first freshman events.

History Lesson
The Crimson has won the Biglin Bowl in each of the last three seasons and 48 times overall. MIT won the inaugural race and has captured the trophy four other times since, most recently in 1983. Dartmouth has four titles, including two in the last six years (2006, '08). The trophy honors John A. Biglin, Dartmouth's first rowing coach.

Scouting the Opposition
Dartmouth (1-0) began spring competition last weekend, taking three of four races against Delaware. The Big Green varsity won by 12.1 seconds, while the second varsity eight and freshman four were also victorious. The MIT varsity eight (0-2), which opened with a fifth-place finish in the petite final at the San Diego Crew Classic, placed third to Yale and Georgetown last week. The Engineers' freshman eight and varsity four both finished second, ahead of the Hoyas.
