GOLD RIVER, Calif. -- Brown leads the Ivy League contingent after day two at the 2011 NCAA Division I Rowing Championships with its first and second varsity eights in Sunday's grand finals.

Brown's second varsity eight boat won the first semifinals heat, topping 2010 champion Virginia, while its first varsity eight took second behind Stanford in its Saturday morning heat. The Bears' fours qualified for the petite final after crossing the finish line fifth, thanks to a late push in the final 500 meters, in the semifinals.

Princeton joins Brown as the only other Ivy boat in the first varsity eight grand final after finishing second to Southern California in its semifinal heat. The Tigers' second varsity eight and fours look to cap off the weekend with strong showings in their respective petite finals on Sunday.

All five Ivy schools in the championship regatta have boats competing on the final day on Lake Natoma with Yale in the petite finals and Dartmouth and Harvard in the third level finals in all three races.
