Directions to Northeastern Boathouse

PHILADELPHIA - The Penn women's rowing team is only about a month away from EAWRC Sprints, and the run-up to that championship event begins in earnest this weekend as the Quakers compete for the Orange Challenge Cup with Northeastern and Syracuse. This year's races will be hosted by Northeastern on the Charles River in Boston.

Fans can watch live video of the varsity 8 race, which will go off at 9 a.m. The race will be filmed with commentary on www.gonu.tv.

Northeastern won the varsity 8 race a year ago, defeating Penn by four seconds. The Huskies have won four of the last five varsity races, in fact, with Syracuse taking the crown in 2009. Penn's last varsity 8 win in this race was in 1995, but Head Coach Mike Lane is excited about the possibilities this time around.

"I am really excited to get back to racing," he said. "We have had a two-week break which has been great, but we are pretty jumpy and are ready to get back on the water and continue making history.

"In the past this tends to be our most competitive regular season race, I am fired up to see what happens Saturday."
