St. Mary's vs. Franklin & Marshall

How It Happened

  • In the varsity eight race, the F&M crew appeared to enter St. Mary's water despite warnings to steer away. The crews were even for most of the race. When the Diplomats forced St. Mary's to stop rowing, F&M had just pulled ahead. Both crews were open water ahead of the F&M junior varsity. The decision was made to relegate the F&M varsity behind the crew they interfered with.
  • The Seahawks win the varsity eight in 6:30.2. F&M varsity second (6:25.6) after relegation followed by F&M junior varsity third (6:46.5).
  • The other race featured the varsity four. The Diplomats won that race in 7:36.1 followed by St. Mary's in second (8:25.8).
