Hammer Cup Results

Below are the results from the annual indoor rowing race between cross-town rivals Case Western Reserve University and John Carroll. Cleveland State was allowed to compete for the Cup for the first time in 2008. The cup is contested every year between the Cleveland colleges during the Hammer Ergatta, which switches venues every year between Case, CSU and John Carroll.

Beginning with the 2010 event the coaches agreed on a new points system to determine the Hammer Cup winner. The system awards points based on finish order and how many other rowers were beaten. This new system better accommodates more colleges with varying sized teams yet still awards depth and speed. Prior to the 2010 points system, the Hammer Cup winner is determined by averaging the times of the top few finishers from each main category: open men, open women, novice men and novice women. The number of rowers that "counted" for the calculations was agreed upon each year with a handshake between head coaches before anyone pulled a chain.

Case won the inaugural Hammer Cup in 1995 over 2500m in Concept 2 Model B ergometers. The next year the distance was shortened to 2000m to follow the precedent set by the CRASH-B indoor regatta and has remained at 2000m since.

Verdict to Date: Case 13 - JCU 8 - CSU 2
