Georgetown's third varsity 8+ boat opens action for the heavyweights in the only six-boat heat of the division. The Hoyas race Princeton, Boston University, Wisconsin, Cornell and Rutgers from lane five. A showdown with Princeton, Dartmouth, Wisconsin, Cornell and Holy Cross highlight the third heat of the varsity 8+ race before the Blue & Gray wraps up preliminary races against BU, Princeton, GW, Columbia and Holy Cross in the second varsity 8+ event.

"We're looking to improve on a solid regular season of racing and peak at the Sprints," said Head Coach Luke Agnini. "Our team goal is simple -- to qualify for IRAs."
