  • SYRACUSE, NY – The Rutgers heavyweight crew varsity eight defeated Syracuse for the first time in seven tries to decide the Ten Eyck Cup April 12 on Lake Onondaga. Rutgers is ranked 17th and Syracuse is 20th in the latest USRowing/Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association Men’s Varsity Eights Poll (April 10).

    “Our varsity had a very strong race today, and it was a big win for us,” Rutgers head coach Steve Wagner said. “It’s nice to get the Ten Eyck Cup.”

    The varsity eight posted a time of 6:03.6 to defeat the Orangemen (6:11.5) by two boatlengths. The RU crew consisted of junior Chris Graves (Northfield, NJ) [bow], senior Mark Hayden (Wexford, PA) [2], sophomore Nathan Carter (Springfield, VA) [3], sophomore Colin Jesberger (Chalfont, PA) [4], senior Mike Dori (West Windsor, NJ) [5], sophomore Fred Bidrawn (Mt. Holly, NJ) [6], junior Sam Stitt (McLean, VA) [7], junior Jim Green (Erdenheim, PA) [stroke] and sophomore Ned DelGuercio (Media, PA) [coxswain].

    Syracuse won the second varsity (6:19.7) and freshmen (6:24.3) races, defeating RU, which posted times of 6:32.3 and 6:33.5, respectively.

    The Scarlet Knights will next be in action Sunday, April 13, when RU travels to Ithaca, NY, to take on Cornell for the Smith Cup.
