Saturday's races were originally scheduled for Cambridge's Charles River but were moved to Providence due to forecasted high winds that could make the Charles unrowable.

Last Time Out
Radcliffe opened its spring season with varsity and second varsity wins against visiting Tulsa here on the Charles a week ago. The Black and White varsity posted a 28-second win, following up a 30.2-second victory by the second varsity. The Golden Hurricane won the varsity four race by 4.1 seconds as both teams battled freezing temperatures and a headwind.
The varsity four A notched Radcliffe's lone win in the season-opening dual regatta against Brown last season, edging the Bears' four by a second. Brown posted wins in the varsity, second varsity and third varsity eights, as well as the varsity four B.
