On Sunday (March 29), the Radcliffe lightweight crew opened things off right, taking home two first-place finishes at Holy Cross. The varsity eight finished with a time of 6:35 — four seconds ahead of the Holy Cross Crusaders and eight seconds ahead of the Smith Pioneers. The Black and White also captured the novice eight, finishing just a second ahead of Smith in the event. Radcliffe was the runner-up in the second varsity eight race with a time of 7:29.1.
Radcliffe returns to action on Saturday (April 4) in D.C. for the Class of 2004 Cup race at Georgetown.
