THE RACE - The Penn women’s rowing teamwill takeon Princeton and DartmouthSaturday morning in the Award Plaque race. The Quakers are coming off a solid day last Saturday when they just missed out on winning the Class of ‘89 Plate. Penn won two of the four races - the second varsity 8 and varsity 4 - but Rutgers had a one-point edge in the overall standings, with Cornell in third.

SPECTATOR BUS - A spectator bus will depart at 9:45 a.m. from Lloyd Hall (at the Art Museum end of Boathouse Row) to the Grandstands. The bus will return after the last race of the morning.

THE HISTORY - The Award Plaque was first placed into competition in 1985, and has traditionally been raced between Penn, Princeton and Dartmouth. To say the Tigers have dominated the race’s history would be an understatement - Princeton has won all but one race, and has won every one since 1987.

LAST YEAR - Princeton again won the Plaque with a fast 5:51.6. In the battle for second, Dartmouth edged out Penn by just over a second, finishing in 6:01.0 to Penn’s 6:02.2.
