ANNAPOLIS, Md. -
The Navy women's rowing team will host Georgetown on Saturday in its only home appearance of the spring. Racing will begin at 7 a.m. with the first varsity crews.
Saturday's races will take place on Navy's southern 2,000m course, starting at the Manresa Cross (on northeast shore of the Severn River), crossing under the Naval Academy Bridge and finishing along the Hospital Point seawall at College Creek.
Spectators without DOD stickers may park in front of Halligan Hall and walk onto the Yard with a government issued ID. Those with vehicle access should park between the cemetery and Dewey Field for easiest access to the spectator area.
This weekend's races on the Severn River will be held in conjunction with the lightweight team's competition against Georgetown and Delaware. Following the varsity eight race at 7 a.m., the second varsity eight race will take place a 7:40 a.m. The final race, featuring the varsity four crews, will occur at 8:20 a.m.
The Last Time Out
The Mids' varsity boat went 1-2, and as a team Navy crews won six of 12 races at the George Washington Invitational last weekend. The varsity eight defeated this weekend's opponent, Georgetown, by just under eight seconds on Friday, before falling in a pair of tight races to MIT and GW on Saturday. The second varsity eight won two races and lost by just one second to GW.
Navy's varsity four and second varsity eight crews also defeated the Hoyas last weekend.
Navy will travel to Philadelphia, Pa., to meet Boston University and St. Joseph's on Saturday.
