NEW HAVEN, Conn. - It wasn't a complete victory for the Princeton men's lightweights, but the young squad made a strong run in the Goldthwait Cup against the higher-ranked Yale and Harvard squads. Yale topped Princeton by one second, but Princeton claimed a slight victory over Harvard for second place.

Every team won at least one race, including a third-varsity victory for the Tigers. Princeton's first varsity finished in 5:47.2, one second behind Yale's winning time, and .1 of a second ahead of Harvard. Princeton placed second in the top novice race, less than three seconds behind Yale, and the Tigers nearly caught Harvard for second in the second-varsity race.

Saturday marked the end of the first regular season for new coach Greg Hughes, who looked for consistent improvement during the season and seemed to get it. The next step will come at Eastern Sprints, where the team will look to get back into the grand final.

Yale 5:46.2
