Men's Lightweight Rowing Compete at The Belly


PRINCETON, N.J.--The Penn men's rowing team entered two freshmen boats at the Belly of the Carnegie, Sunday. The race was the final of the 2007 fall season.

Penn's "A" crew finished with a time of 14:57.26 (17th place). The "B" boat was clocked at 15:25.77 (22nd place).

The Belly of the Carnegie is an invitational head-race hosted by the Princeton University crew coaching staff for freshman men and novice women collegiate crews. The Belly of the Carnegie regatta is composed of three races for women, lightweight men and heavyweight men, competing over a distance of 2.75 miles.

The Belly Bowl Trophy is awarded to the school with the combined best time for the top two boats in all three events. Last season, Cornell took home its first title since the competition began in 1993.
