PHILADELPHIA - The Penn women's rowing team has spent the last few weeks preparing, and finally the time is here. Its EAWRC Sprints weekend, and on Sunday the Quakers will take to the Cooper River in Pennsauken, N.J., against many of their Eastern rivals to participate in one of the grand races on the collegiate rowing calendar.

In addition to competing for championships in six events, Penn will also be on the hunt for NCAA berths. The varsity eight, second varsity eight, and varsity four are the boats to keep an eye on as the Red and Blue looks to make NCAAs for the first time.

Fans who can't make it to the Cooper River on Sunday can listen to live audio of the event by calling (508) 534-7389, or by tuning in online. Click here for live audio online!

"Sprints is the greatest rowing race in the country," said Head Coach Mike Lane. "It is an opportunity for us to showcase what we have been building toward all year. Each race is a little different, and on any given day any given team will have the chance to win. That is what's great about our sport -- it all comes down to what is done on the water on race day.

"I think we are in a great position to be successful," he continued. "As long as we show up on Sunday with our briefcases packed, I have full confidence that we will achieve our goals."
