Women's Rowing Ready For Sprints

2010 EAWRC Sprints Heat Sheet
1980 Undefeated Varsity Celebration Invitation

PHILADELPHIA - All the work has been put in, and the Penn women's rowing team is ready for the culmination of its season. The EAWRC Sprints -- the Quakers' championship event -- take place this Sunday on the Cooper River in Pennsauken, N.J. If Penn is going to make a push for an NCAA berth, this is the day that the Quakers make it happen.

"Eastern Sprints is one of they greatest races in the country, the energy and excitement is indescribable," said head coach Mike Lane. "I am fired up to get back on the Cooper River and lay our cards on the table.

"All of our boats are ranked in a position that, if we have good races, we will move into the grand finals which was our goal from day one of our season," said Lane. "We want to be in a position to go after a Sprints medal!"

The Penn women will have added motivation with the appearance of the members of Penn's 1980 varsity eight, who will gather this weekend to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their undefeated season and Sprints championship. Seven of the nine women, plus the head and assistant coach from that team, will be celebrated at a cocktail reception at Coach Lane's house on Saturday. The group will also be out for a row down by the Sprints course at approximately 12:50 p.m. on Sunday.

"Having the 1980 crew come back to celebrate their 30-year reunion is very inspirational and will add to the excitement of the weekend," said Lane. "I would love for fans of Penn rowing to come out and cheer them on Sunday."
