PHILADELPHIA - The Penn women's rowing team begins the spring portion of its 2011-12 season this Saturday, competing in the annual Connell Cup Regatta against fellow Ivy League crews Columbia and Yale. This year's races will be hosted by Columbia. The Connell Cup has been run continuously since 1979.

Penn won the varsity four and finished second in two of the other races at last year's Connell Cup, including the varsity eight race where the Quakers were just three seconds off of Yale's winning time.

Yale is ranked sixth in the College Rowing Coaches Association's (CRCA) preseason national poll, while Penn and Columbia were among several teams also receiving votes.

"I am really excited to see our crews get back on the water after a very strong fall and an even better winter season," said Head Coach Mike Lane. "We are ready to test what we have worked on, both on the erg and on the water, against two very strong programs. Our seniors have really stepped up as rowers but even more so as great leaders. It will be fun to watch that leadership lead this program for the remainder of the spring."
