"Our Varsity 8 did an outstanding job today," Rhode Island head coach Shelagh Donahoe said. "The Resolute Cup is a long standing race against Boston College and we enjoy the competitive racing every year. From here, we will continue to prepare for the A-10 Championship."

Dartmouth swept each of the races. Rhode Island's Second Varsity 8 boat caught a crab, contributing to a tough finish.
