Women's Rowing Readies For Navy Day Regatta

PHILADELPHIA - Fall preparations have started around Boathouse Row, and on Saturday the first indication of where the Penn women's rowing program stands will begin to crystallize. The Quakers will be in action at the Navy Day Regatta, which takes place Saturday along the team's home course along the Schuylkill River.

The Penn women will have nine boats competing in the Navy Day event, four fours and five eights. As it is the first event of the non-competitive fall season, expect to see a lot of mixing and matching in the Red and Blue lineups.

"Everyone around the boathouse is extremely fired up to get our 2010-11 racing campaign underway," said head coach Mike Lane. "We are really looking forward to getting fall racing underway. We have a great mix of experience with our senior class as well as the most physically talented group of freshman I have ever had here at Penn."

The Quakers had three boats finish first in their division at this three-mile event a year ago, headlined by the varsity 8 which captured the inaugural Liz Bergen Award after taking first in the Women's Open/Collegiate final. It was Penn's first title in that divisionsince 2006.

"We are going out Saturday to defend our win from last year,and I expect it tobe a great battle all the way down the river," said Lane.
