UW Crew Cruises

Compiled From Wire Services

Princeton’s eight-oared crew led five American entries into the finals of the Henley Royal Regatta with victories.

Princeton won its semifinal of the Ladies’ Plate, but the University of Washington was beaten in the other semifinal by the Nottingham County Rowing Association’s record clocking.

One Washington crew did reach the finals, making it in the Thames Cup with an exciting half-length victory over University of London in the semifinal.

The U.S. national heavyweight eight, rowing as San Diego Training Center, will defend its Grand Challenge Cup against Britain’s eight today.
