We also made steady progress in our varsity four and novice eight this weekend with some pretty young athletes. Every year we get a little deeper and it's starting to show. The second varsity eight results can be better. That has traditionally been a strong event for us and it can be again. We couldn't have asked for better competition this weekend."
