Virginia, the nation’s No. 1-ranked rowing team, heads into the Saturday’s 11th Annual ACC Rowing Championships as the top seed in three of the four events – the First Varsity Eight, the Second Varsity Eight and the First Varsity Four.

Clemson, ranked 12th nationally, is the top seed in the Novice Eight and is second seeded in the First Varsity Eight, the Second Varsity Eight and the First Varsity Four. The Tigers are also the NCAA’s defending national champions in the First Varsity Four.

It marks the eighth time the Tigers have hosted the Championship which will begin at 8:40 a.m. Saturday with an exhibition race of the Second Varsity Fours. The scoring events begin at 9 a.m. with the First Varsity Four, continuing, in order, with the Novice 8+ (9:20 a.m.), the Second Varsity 8+ (9:40 a.m.), and finally, with the First Varsity 8+ at 10 a.m.
