Georgetown won both the George's Cup and Class of 1998 Cup, totaling 18 points in each respective event. The Colonials took second place with 14.5 points in both events followed by George Mason in third with 6.5 points.
"I thought all of our boats had good races today," said Head Coach Eric Carcich. "We definitely feel as if we have upped our game again. That was a very talented Georgetown crew all-around and they did a great job today but I am really happy with our ability to have every boat get faster throughout each week."

The Varsity 4 rowed a strong race to take first place in 7:27.40. Georgetown followed in 7:33.10 with George Mason taking third in 7:43.70.
The Hoyas earned a narrow four-second win in the JV8, finishing the course in 6:36.80. GW was second across the line in 6:40.90 with George Mason following in 7:04.60.
Georgetown clinched both cups with a Varsity 8 victory, registering a time of 6:24.10. The Colonials followed in second place in 6:31.20 and George Mason placed third in 6:37.00.
"We have seven more days until the Atlantic 10 Championship and I am confident we can take that next step to perform at our best next weekend and that is our goal," said Coach Carcich.
The Colonials will row in the Atlantic 10 Championship on May 4 on the Occoquan River in Woodbridge, Va.
