After a mediocre day of competition Friday, the Wisconsin men's crew team entered only one boat in a grand final at the Intercollegiate Rowing Association National Championship Saturday on the Cooper River in Camden, N.J.

Wisconsin's varsity pair without coxswain, consisting of sophomores Chris Anspach and Tom Webb, raced to finish in 7:47.90, good for fifth place. Cornell won the event in 7:34.00.

Wisconsin also sent five boats to petite finals, with a highest finish of first (seventh overall) in the varsity four without coxswain. The Badgers finished in 6:47.52 in that event while second-place Michigan finished in 6:48.26. The Badgers also took third in the petite final of the second varsity eight (ninth overall) and 10th overall in the freshmen four with coxswain.
