Less than eight seconds separated all four boats in the opening heat of the 8+ race as the Hoyas finished fourth against Cornell, Columbia and Princeton to move on to the Petite Final. Racing head-to-head against local-rival Navy, Georgetown was edged by just under two seconds to place second in the Petite Final.
