PHILADELPHIA – The University of Pennsylvania women’s rowing team will conclude the fall portion of its 2014-15 season on Sunday, racing at the University of Virginia’s Rivanna Romp.
Action begins at 9 a.m. with the Varsity Eights, followed by the small boats at 10:30 a.m. Boats will go off one at a time, about 10-15 seconds apart, in a time trial to determine the winners.
The Quakers will compete against crews from the host Cavaliers and Ivy foe Columbia as well as Clemson, Duke, Louisville, Oklahoma, and Old Dominion.
Free parking is available at the Thomas Temple Allan Boathouse on the west bank of the Rivanna Reservoir. The boathouse is the closest point spectators can see the boats along the 4,000-meter course.
The Romp is always a great event, and we look forward to getting down to Virginia to enjoy the great racing and hospitality,” said head coach Mike Lane. “The last three weeks we have taken a step back to keep things simple, as well create competition every single day in practice. I believe we accomplished that, so much so that setting lineups for the weekend will be extremely difficult! Everyone is stepping up and showing us they want to represent Penn!”
