ANNAPOLIS, Md. - The Navy women's rowing team will travel to Philadelphia, Pa., to take on Boston University and St. Joseph's on Saturday. Racing will begin at 9:50 a.m. on the Schuylkill River.

The Schedule
The Navy, Boston University and St. Joseph's varsity eight crews will open the racing on Saturday morning at 9:50 a.m. The second varsity race will follow at 10:10 a.m. and the varsity four `A' race will take place at 10:30 a.m. The third varsity will be the last eight race of the day, at 10:50 a.m., with the varsity four `B' and novice four following at 11:10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., respectively.

The Last Time Out
In its only home meet of the spring, Navy swept all three races from Georgetown last weekend. Navy's first varsity crew used a strong finish to hold off the Hoyas, 6:59.26-7:02.02, as the top boat improved to 18-3 on the season. The Mids' second varsity eight and four boat both won their races by over five seconds.

Quoting the Coach
Coach Mike Hughes on this weekend's competition...

"Last weekend I thought were good races for us, to beat Georgetown two weeks in a row is pretty good. We were able to really have a fantastic sprint in both boats. This weekend, St. Joe's and Boston University are both great competition. I think we're very close in speed, so it will be whoever gets the best race."

Up Next
Navy will compete at the Patriot League Championships on April 29 in Cherry Hill, N.J.
