Brown coach Paul Cooke was disappointed in his crew's performance. "We rowed too high and too short," he said. "And Princeton looked good. They were better than I expected. They rowed very well and they really controlled the race."
The day started badly for the Bears when the freshman eight, which had hoped to make a strong showing against Princeton's top-ranked freshman eight were forced out of the race with a broken rudder at the halfway point. The Brown frosh were just under a length behind Princeton and well ahead of Pennsylvania when the mishap occurred.
Brown falls to 3-3 on the season and will return to action on May 11 for a competition at Princeton.
