Rhody, Boston College to Battle for Resolute Cup Saturday

KINGSTON, R.I. – Rhode Island will look to win its 11th consecutive Resolute Cup when it travels to Boston Saturday morning to take on Boston College. The Rams also will be racing against Boston University.

The annual Resolute Cup race is between the Varsity 8+ boats between Rhode Island and Boston College. Last year, the Rams edged the Eagles by 2.5 seconds to take the cup for the 10th season in a row. Though Boston University will not factor in the Resolute Cup, the Terriers provided a stiff challenge a year ago as well, as all three boats finished within nine seconds of each other.

Rhody is coming off a strong showing at the George Washington Invitational last weekend, where the Rams placed third out of nine teams. URI's Second Varsity 8+ boat has been dominant this season, going 14-1 in its races thus far.

The Varsity 4+ boat was victorious in its race last weekend, beating Saint Joseph's and MIT at the GW Invitational. Saturday's races against BC and Boston University mark one of two final tune-ups for the Rams before competing at the Atlantic 10 Championship on May 6.
