Women's Rowing Gears Up For Clemson Invitational

Follow @PennWomensCrew

PHILADELPHIA – After a break last weekend, the University of Pennsylvania women’s rowing team will compete this weekend at the Clemson Invitational. This will mark the second straight year the Quakers have participated in the weekend-long event.

Penn’s boats will race three times during the weekend, twice on Saturday and once on Sunday morning. The complete schedule by boat is listed below.

As part of the competition, the Penn boats will face Cornell in each of the Saturday morning races as those two programs compete for the Raritan Cup and the Class of ‘89 Plaque. The cup has been challenged annually since 1991.

Clemson will provide live audio and video of the races throughout the competition. Audio will be provided for the first 1,000 meters, at which point video will pick up and catch the teams in the final 1,000 meters. A link to Clemson's video page is in the box with this release.
