Heavyweights vs. Syracuse

The oldest continuously active heavyweight competition for Dartmouth has been against Syracuse University.  In 1958, Dr. Anthony Ladd of Syracuse established the Packard Cup in honor of his father-in-law, Dr. Edward N. Packard - stroke of the Syracuse crew in 1904.  Until 1968, the race was at two miles, when it was reduced to 2000 meters.
