Tigers Take Second in Carolinas Cup

CLEMSON, S.C. — Clemson took second place Saturday at the Carolinas Cup, the 16th running of the championship held between the Tigers, Duke and North Carolina. The Blue Devils captured the Daughtry Cup trophy for the first time since 2007, winning with a total of 99 team points over five events. Clemson had 87, followed by North Carolina’s 78.

Clemson finished second in four of the five races. The most exciting was the final race of the morning, the First Varsity 8+. Clemson held off a late push from North Carolina, topping the Tar Heel boat by one second.

Clemson is on spring break next week before returning to racing action on April 1 against Columbia and Princeton in Leonia, N.J.
