And We've Got Controversy!

Nothing quite like starting off the night with some old fashioned controversy.

It appeared that Harvard was deemed the winner in the 200 Medley Relay, however the 1st place points and bragging rights were very short lived.

Shorter than any Harvard fan would like, that's for sure.

Within seconds after the final swimmer touched the wall to signify the end of the race, the big board at Princeton showed a disqualification of Harvard for an unspecified broken rule.

Harvard took a massive blow to their chances of winning the overall competition as a result of the disqualification, which ultimately penalized them 64 points. But the gaff also rewarded Cornell with yet another relay win in a time of 1:29.11.
