The biggest upset of the week is that the most improved award at IRA's goes to the crew who mathematically increases their point total for the regatta, which meant Princeton won by going from an absolutely terrible year last year, to a not very good, but not so terrible year this year. Cornell should have received the most improved award, but that's just my two cents.
kudos to Stanford -- great row, looked great -- and first lwt from the west to win. Yale for winning the V8 women's race. Virginia, first team champ from outside of the northeast and west (but I am waiting for an outsider to win the V8) and for Mercyhurst, another first.
