Women's Rowing Second at Connell Cup

Connell Cup final results

ORCHARD BEACH LAGOON, N.Y. - The Penn women's rowing team finished second at the Connell Cup Saturday, falling to No. 1 Yale but defeating Columbia. The races were hosted by the Lions.

Racing in moderate chop with a tailwind, the Quakers' varsity eight clocked 6:47.8 on the 2,000-meter course. That put them a little more than 11 seconds behind the Bulldogs (6:36.2), and just more than two seconds ahead of the Lions (6:50.1).

The day began with the varsity 4B race, which was swept by Yale as the Bulldogs' B boat defeated the A boat by nine seconds. Penn was third, followed by Columbia. In the varsity 4, Yale clocked 7:21.2 to easily row past Columbia and Penn.

In the second varsity eight, Yale (6:39.3) was 13 seconds ahead of Penn and 22 seconds ahead of Columbia; that race was followed by the varsity eights.

In the novice eight race, which concluded the day, Yale clocked 6:53.7 to defeat Penn by nearly 18 seconds and Columbia by nearly 20 seconds.

Penn returns to action next weekend, participating in the Indiana Invitational which begins Thursday in Bloomington, Ind.
