The Men's Heavyweight Rowing Team is one of three crew teams at Columbia.


The Heavyweight crew season is divided between fall appearances by the varsity crew at the Head of the Charles Regatta (at Harvard) and the Princeton Chase, and the freshman crew at the Head of the Schuylkill (at Penn) and Belly of the Carnegie (at Princeton), followed by Cup Season in the spring where it takes part in a series of regattas, followed by the Eastern Sprints and IRA National Championships.


The 2008 Men's Heavyweight team set a record by winning the first Blackwell Cup in 67 years and the first Maxwell Stevenson Cup in 45 years, achieving the feat in a single weekend.[1][2][3]
