Women's Rowing Gears Up For Head of the Charles

2011 Head of the Charles Regatta Website

PHILADELPHIA - After a successful first event two weeks ago, the Penn women's rowing team will send a boat to the prestigious Head of the Charles Regatta which takes place this Sunday on the Charles River in Boston. The Quakers will row an eight in the College Championship 8, which is scheduled to begin at 2:58 p.m.

Head Coach Mike Lane always considers this a reward for his rowers, and he is excited for the weekend.

"I am excited for the carnival-like atmosphere of the Head of the Charles," said Lane. "It is always a great event to be a part of and extremely exciting for our athletes competing. We are starting ninth, which is a great starting position for our crew. We are a mixed crew with young energy mixed with some veteran talent. This race is just another journey in our campaign to make history this spring."
