# ROWING: Ireland’s only eight competing at Henley Royal Regatta bowed out of the Temple Cup today. Trinity led the University of Michigan at the Barrier and Fawley (roughly halfway). A push by Trinity was ineffective, but the Americans staged their own which took them into the lead. They took control and won by one and a quarter lengths.
