Rams Take on Holy Cross, MIT Saturday

Rams Take on Holy Cross, MIT Saturday


– Rhode Island heads to Worcester, Mass. to take on MIT and Holy Cross Saturday for its final race leading into the Atlantic 10 Championship.

This will be the third time this spring the Rams will go up against MIT. On March 25, Rhode Island swept all three races against MIT and Coast Guard, winning with its Varsity 8, Second Varsity 8 and Varsity 4 boats. The Varsity 8 race was very competitive, as Rhody won by less than one second.

The schools saw each other again at the George Washington Invitational on April 8. Though Rhode Island finished well ahead of MIT in the team standings, MIT's Varsity 8 boat won the rematch, beating the Rams by exactly one second. Saturday's race will be the rubber match between the boats. Rhody's Second Varsity 8 and Varsity 4 boats both won handily against MIT at the GW Invitational.

Rhode Island last raced against Holy Cross last season, when it swept the Crusaders and MIT on Lake Quinsigamond on April 24.

The races will be streamed this weekend. Viewers need to register with an email address, but there is no cost.
