DURHAM, N.C. – The No. 17 Duke rowing team ends its regular season this weekend in Bloomington, Ind., for the Dale England Cup Regatta at Lake Lemon. Session one will take place Friday evening while the second segment will begin Saturday morning.
For each race in the V8, 2V8 and V4, a crew earns the following points for its team: 36 points for the winning V8, 27 points for second, 18 for third and nine for fourth; 24 points for the winning 2V8 unit, 18 for second, 12 for third and six for fourth; 12 points for the winning V4 boat, nine for second, six for third and three points for fourth. Should a tie occur, the fastest combined times from morning and afternoon sessions in the V8 event will be the tiebreaker. The team that earns the most overall total points for the weekend wins the Dale England Cup trophy.
Joining the Blue Devils at the event are the host Hoosiers, ranked No. 16 this week, Notre Dame and San Diego. For live results during the event, follow @IndianaRowing on Twitter.
