Senior Dave Mackasey (heavyweight men) and junior Becky Kreutter (lightweight women) share some insights on the 2014 racing season and a big upcoming weekend for a pair of Top-4 programs.
Mackasey is a member of the fourth-ranked heavyweights, who will head to the Charles River Saturday to take on No. 3 Harvard in the annual Compton Cup showdown. Princeton hasn't won this race since 2006, but the Tigers have gotten out to a 5-0 start this season and will find out where they stand among the East's elite following Saturday's competition.
Kreutter is a junior co-captain for the third-ranked women's lightweights, who make their home debut Saturday for the Class of 2006 Cup against Georgetown. Princeton won a thrilling Knecht Cup race last weekend, and its lone loss this season came against No. 1 Stanford. Kreutter discusses the impact of a strong trio of freshmen, as well as the excitement of racing on Lake Carnegie this weekend.
