SU's 2V finishes 9th overall at the Sprints, one spot ahead of its seeding.

The Orange V4+ was third behind the Irish and the Cardinals. Louisville got a win in the 2V4+ over ND, with Syracuse third. And the Orange 3V8 took second, open water behind the Irish.

The loss to Notre Dame deprives Coach Justin Moore's squad of the hoped-for automatic NCAA bid that goes with the Big East title. And for Syracuse, it is the last racing in the Big East as the Orange moves to the Atlantic Coast Conference next season. Eventually they'll see Notre Dame and Louisville in competition there.
In addition to Wisco, the Orange V8 goes against Cornell, Georgetown, navy and Penn in the Petite.
The guaranteed top 12 finish at the Sprints seems to ensure that Syracuse will get an invitation to the IRA in Sacramento.
SU's JV had to wait to race in the morning heat as Rutgers had breakage at the start line and all crews had to row off and wait for repairs to be made. Once they got going, the Orange grabbed the lead in the start but Brown soon took over and rowed away from the field as SU and Northeastern fought for the second spot. The Huskies got across first, with SU ahead of Columbia, Georgetown and Rutgers.
The Orange 2V goes against the Lions, Cornell, Penn Yale and Navy in the Petite.
Syracuse's third varsity eight was the first Orange crew to race this morning, taking third in its heat about half a length ahead of Harvard. Brown and BU advanced to the Grand Final.
In the Petite the Orange 3V faces Harvard, Cornell, Columbia, Dartmouth and Yale.

Syracuse and Dartmouth's varsity eights are set to face off again Sunday in the morning heat at the Eastern Sprints, just eight days after the Big Green edged the Orange by .7 second on Onondaga Lake. Dartmouth has the 12 seed and SU the 13. Top-seeded Harvard is favored in the heat. Six seed Boston U, seven seed Wisconsin and 18 seed Rutgers complete the field.
Mason Leasure is back in the V8 after being a last minute scratch last weekend due to illness and the SU crew is hoping that will help get the boat moving faster.
Syracuse's second varsity is the 10 seed and the 3V is 11.

Syracuse's Second Varsity Eight, also racing on the buoy line course grabbed the lead off the start and beat Dartmouth by more than a length of open water. The Third Varsity Eights got their race in on the regular course that runs past the boathouse and SU also had an open water win.
Syracuse's Varsity Eight came into the race ranked 15th in the US Rowing Coaches Poll to Dartmouth's 16th. In the EARC seeding poll SU was 13th and Dartmouth 12th. If this close race leaves them in those positions in the final seeding poll they'll face off again next Sunday morning in the morning heat at the Eastern Sprints.
Both Syracuse and Dartmouth will be looking for a strong finish at the Sprints to secure an invitation to the IRA in Sacramento.
