Heavyweights 2009 Fall Schedule Announced


PHILADELPHIA - Head coach Greg Myhr has released the official 2009 Fall schedule for the University of Pennsylvania men's heavyweight rowing team. The Quakers will take part in four regattas during the month of October with the Red and Blue's first regatta under Myhr's tenure taking place on Oct. 10 on the Schuylkill River.

The Quakers open the 2009 campaign on Saturday, Oct. 10 when they host the Navy Day Regatta on the Schuylkill River. It will mark the first competition for the Quakers since Myhr took over the heavyweight program in August.

The next weekend, on Sunday, Oct. 18, Penn will join many of the top teams in the country in Boston, Mass., for the historic Head of the Charles.
