MALDEN – The Tufts University men's rowing second varsity eight and third varsity eight both defeated Wesleyan to highlight Jumbo racing on the Malden River Saturday afternoon.
Tufts' 3rd varsity eight was the first Jumbo boat into the water and they recorded a tightly-contested 6:35.26 to 6:37.40 win over Wesleyan's 3V8.
The other Tufts win from the 2V8 was by less than a five-second margin as the Jumbos finished in 6:20.93 against Wesleyan's 6:25.17.
Jumbos Josh Kaltman (cox), Paul Gelhaus (stroke), Rohail Rai, Harris Hardiman-Mostow, Peter Malinovsky, Isaac Mudge, James Miller, Sam Agnew and Thomas Hendrickson made up the second varsity boat today.
The second varsity boat would lose to Bates later in the day to split their pair of Saturday races.
The Jumbos' first varsity eight lost both of its races to Wesleyan and Bates. Against the Cardinals, Tufts came in at 6:13.07 behind Wesleyan's 6:07.64. Bates rowed to a 6:10.62 to 6:28.14 victory in 1V8.
Tufts' first varsity eight remained intact from last week with James Grant as coxswain, Andrew MacMillen as stroke and then Nick Hartman, Rich Gilland, Adrian Tanner, Tyler Hagedorn, Mats Edwards, Rick Boer and Ashton Knight.
Tufts also had a fourth varsity eight and a varsity four in action on Saturday. The 4V8 represented itself well while losing to Wesleyan's third varsity eight 6:40.64 to 6:46.25. A strong Bates program finished the day's races with a 7:23.56 win over Tufts (8:01.74) in men's varsity four.
For the Jumbo fourth varsity, 4v: coxswain Henry Fernandez guided Michael Thramann, Dean Ericksen, Mitch Koganski, Colin Lata, Dinghan Zhang, Matt Agurcia, John DiGiacomo and Michael Eve. The men's varsity four with coxswain was Fernandez with Jack Telman, August Fagerheim, Alec Whipple and Tamas Takata.
