Men's Heavyweight Rowing Readies for Childs Cup

PHILADELPHIA--The Penn men's heavyweight team prepares for the Childs Cup at Princeton's Lake Carnegie, Saturday.

The History
In 1879, George W. Childs, owner and publisher of the Philadelphia Public Ledger, presented a challenge cup for rowing competition in four-oared races to Columbia, Princeton and Penn. One of Penn’s first intercollegiate races, the Childs Cup, was won by the Quakers that year. In 1889, the Childs Cup was changed to an eight-oared event. Cornell, Navy and California have been invited to participate in the Cup race.
