PRINCETON, N.J. In what was supposed to be a busy weekend for the University of Pennsylvania women’s crew team turned into an abbreviated one-day race. Saturday’s Head of the Schuylkill was cancelled due to debris in the river and heavy winds. When it came time to race Sunday at the Princeton Chase heavy crosswinds and choppy water limited the race to only the eights.
Penn raced three boats with their best finish coming in 13th out of 54 at 16:48:32. The Quakers next boat came in 25th at 17:14.03 and the third placing 50th at 18:35.03.
Penn is off this weekend, but returns to action Nov. 12 in the Belly of the Carnegie at Princeton, N.J.
