The Owls earned three silver medals and one bronze on Saturday. The lightweight 8, freshman 8 and freshman 4 took silver, while the varsity 4 earned bronze. Freshman Jeremy Leeds won the petite final in the men’s single.

The lightweight 8 finished 2.9 seconds behind the University of Delaware to place second. In the next race, the Owls’ varsity 4 boat edged out Bowdoin College by .3 seconds to claim the bronze medal.

The freshman 8 finished less than five seconds behind a first-place Drexel University boat, and the freshman 4 finished 7.2 seconds behind Colgate University.

The varsity 8 finished second behind the University of Michigan in the second level final. The boat earned its first medal since 2008 at last year’s Dad Vail Regatta.
