Cornell lights beat Penn and Harvard at Penn to secure both the Matthews Trophy and Leonard Cup last weekend.

Cornell is typically at a disadvantage relative to other crews except Dartmouth because Ithaca is cold which means less water time before racing starts (I remember cutting blocks of ice out of the inlet during spring break to free up a channel to row) but the first varsity 8 looks to be very fast this year.

Now you need to toss in a couple buckets of water before rowing off. Lake level is low.

Beat Columbia over the weekend. Usually MIT also features in this race but after getting knocked around for years they've decided to go DIII instead.

But stick with D1 caliber sports pranks. Making steam spew from the earth - the sidelines of the Yale-Harvard game - was classic.

Cornell sweeps Dartmouth.. Albeit in an earlier race, Cornell’s B and C boats best the time for Dartmouth’s varsity. Next stop - Eastern Sprints. LGR!

Congratulations National Champions! After disappointment in the Eastern Sprints, Cornell 8+ takes gold at the IRAs, 4+ takes bronze and 4- seventh. Combined, they are the overall point winner in the Lightweight category.

Finally, a team national championship for Cornell in 2018-19 to go along with our individual wrestling success for Yianni Diakomihalis '21. And what else this past year that Cornell won? Polo men and women I believe made it to the nation semifinals, two steps shy of the crowns.

Thanks for these updates. I was on the freshman lightweight team in '90-'91 and really enjoyed it. I had to work the following years, so I was unable to have any part in the National Championship team the next year (not that I would have been in the first boat). It is great to hear how well they have done over the last few years.

Here's the video from Sunday. Lightweight 8+ Varsity coverage begins at about 2:57.10.
