The men’s heavyweight eight won their fifth race in a row last night, defeating 14th-ranked Yale and Penn for the Blackwell Cup at Orchard Beach Lagoon, N.Y.

The Lions won the event with a time of 5:54.0, two seconds ahead of Yale and 13 ahead of Penn. The Varsity Eight has yet to lose this spring, and will compete next week for the Doc Lusins Trophy against Boston University and Syracuse. 

In other sports results, the lightweight eight finished second place in the Geiger Cup (losing to Cornell, but defeating MIT), Gabrielle Geronimos scored with less than 40 seconds to go for the women’s lacrosse team first Ivy win of the season (11-10 over Harvard), and both baseball and softball split their first doubleheaders with Cornell (photo by Columbia University Athletics).
