Heavyweight Rowing Opens Spring Saturday

PHILADELPHIA – It’s back on the water for the University of Pennsylvania heavyweight rowing team this weekend as the Quakers will launch on the Schuylkill River on Saturday against George Washington and Drexel.

The Red and Blue have won five of the seven McCausland Cup races, including each of the last four. Last year, Penn blitzed to a 12.5-second win on the Schuylkill River.
