Philadelphia, Pa. - The Mercyhurst men's rowing lightweight four lived up to its billing Saturday, winning its event as the top seed at the Dad Vail Regatta. All four Laker boats that competed Saturday advanced to the finals and the rowing programs brought home three top three finishes.

The women's varsity eight entered the Division II/III competition as the No. 3 ranked crew in all of Division II. After narrowly advancing to the semifinals with a third place finish in its preliminary heat Friday, the Lakers finished third again in the semifinals with a time of 6:29.146 to take the last spot to the finals. Mercyhurst rowed a 6:48.488 in the championship to place third behind No. 2 Dowling and Grand Valley State. The Lakers did beat No. 4 Philadelphia.

The men's heavyweight four advanced to the finals by placing second in its semifinal heat with a time of 6:26.050. In the championship, Mercyhurst finished fifth in 6:48.762.
