Directions to Lake Monticello (race site)

PHILADELPHIA - The Penn women's rowing team has added the top-ranked University of Virginia's UVA Invitational to its 2012 spring schedule, and it will be a busy weekend on Lake Monticello as the Quakers compete three different times -- once on Saturday morning, once on Saturday afternoon, and one final time on Sunday morning. All of the races will be against highly regarded crews.

On Saturday morning, Penn and Cornell will reprise their annual competition for the Class of '89 Plaque. The Plaque has been won by Cornell the last three years, after Penn won it consecutively in 2007 and 2008. Cornell enters the weekend ranked 14th in the latest USRowing/Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association (CRCA) national poll.

On Saturday afternoon, Penn will square off with a pair of Big Ten teams, Michigan State and Minnesota. The Spartans are ranked 15th in this week's CRCA poll, while the Gophers are 19th.

On Sunday morning, Penn will conclude its weekend with Notre Dame and the University of San Diego. The Fighting Irish are the first team out of the national poll, with 53 voting points.

"I am really excited to take last weekend's momentum and carry into this weekend's races," said head coach Mike Lane. "Every race we are in features a crew or two ranked in the top 20 in the country. It is a great opportunity for us to prove that we are worthy of the same ranking.

"Our team is like a train engine cresting the mountain range," he continued. "I believe we are just now nearing the top, getting ready to make the run down the other side!"
