Harvard Women Take Second at Regis Bowl
The Harvard sailing team finished second among 10 schools at the Women's Regis Bowl, hosted Saturday and Sunday on the Charles River by Boston University. The Crimson also placed 13th in the Smith Trophy at MIT and ninth at Central Series Four at Tufts.
The Crimson had the fourth- and eighth-place duos out of 20 boats sailing in a combined division at BU. Sophomores Emily Lambert and Alexandra Jumper took fourth with 65 points. They placed in the top three in half of 12 weekend races, including each of the first four, and won one race.
Senior Liz Powers and sophomore Marie Appel finished eighth with 95 points. They posted two race wins and a runner-up finish. Harvard tied with Tufts with 160 points, far ahead of fourth-place Yale with 212. Boston College won with 126 points.
Junior Colin Santangelo and freshman Sarah McCuskee paced the Harvard coeds at MIT. They placed 10th of 26 schools in the A division. They placed in the top half of the field in five of seven races, claiming second place in Saturday's second race. Sunday's Smith racing was cancelled due to lack of wind, as was the Harvard Invite.
