Release:   05/16/2014

WORCESTER, Mass. -- Backed by a runner-up finish from the varsity eight, the Bucknell rowing team finished a close third behind Boston University and Navy at the 2014 Patriot League Championship, which was contested Friday morning on Lake Quinsigamond. The Terriers finished with 49 points to claim the title in their inaugural season in the Patriot League. Navy was second with 45 points, followed by the Bison with 43.

MIT placed fourth with 38 points, followed by Georgetown (33), Holy Cross (21), Lehigh (18), Colgate (17) and Loyola (6). Boston University trailed Navy 27-22 heading into the final event, but the Terriers' varsity eight posted a four-second win over second-place Bucknell to claim the team title.

Bucknell's varsity eight finished just under a second behind Georgetown in its preliminary heat, then came back and posted a time of 7:18.47 over 2,000 meters to beat out MIT, Navy, Georgetown and Holy Cross in the grand final. 

Bucknell's second varsity eight also claimed silver medals, finishing second to Navy by just over four seconds in the grand final. Boston University took third in that race, followed by Georgetown, MIT and Lehigh.

The Bison varsity four was victorious in the petit final after placing fourth in its heat.

Boston University became the first team other than Bucknell or Navy to win a Patriot League rowing title. The Mids claimed the inaugural title in 2005, and then the Bison won seven straight championships before Navy won again last year.
