PHILADELPHIA - Coming off a disappointing performance in the spring's season-opening event, the Penn women's rowing team begins a three-week stretch of competition this Saturday with the Orange Challenge Cup. This year's event is being hosted by Syracuse and will also include Northeastern. Begun in 1981, the Orange Challenge Cup has been run among these three schools continuously since 1995.

Penn swept the varsity 8 and second varsity 8 races last year; the varsity 8 win was the Quakers' first since 1995. The Red and Blue finished second to Northeastern in the varsity 4 and third varsity 8 races.

"I am really excited to go out and make right the mistakes we made from two weeks ago (at the Connell Cup)," said Head Coach Mike Lane. "We had a humbling experience, and how we respond on Saturday will define our successes this spring. This is always the most exciting race of our spring season. It took us more than 15 years to win the Orange Challenge Cup, and we have a huge incentive to keep it in Philly!"
