The Syracuse Orange spring sports are turning the corner towards the championship season. Let’s check in on the week that was for the Olympic sports.
Women’s Rowing had the week off so we’ll start with their counterparts on the men’s side. The 6th-ranked Orange held onto the Goes Cup by defeating Cornell and Navy last weekend in the V8 race.. Syracuse also won the 2V8 and 3V8 races over the Big Red and Midshipmen to retain the Stagg Cup. The Orange are back in action at the end of the month when they race Dartmouth.
