Clemson Women’s Rowing to Participate in Rivanna Romp

Nov. 11, 2011

CLEMSON, SC – The Clemson women’s rowing team will travel to Charlottesville, VA on Sunday to face Virginia, Old Dominion and University of Pennsylvania at the Rivanna Romp. The races at the Rivanna Romp are over a 4000 meter distance (double the spring racing distance), and boats start about 10 seconds apart and race against the clock.

Clemson will race in four Varsity 8s and two Novice 8s at 9:00 am Sunday, then many of the varsity rowers will race again at 10:30 am in six Varsity 4s. Virginia will also have four Varsity 8s and six Varsity 4s. Old Dominion and Penn will each have two Varsity 8s and four Varsity 4s. The Novice race will be two boats from Clemson, one boat from Virginia, Penn and Old Dominion.

“We are coming to the end of our fall training segment, and this will be a great test of how our training is going this year,” said Clemson head coach Robbie Tenenbaum. “I am very proud of how hard and smart our team is working this season, and I am excited to watch us compete this weekend.”

“Virginia is one of the best teams in the country every year, and we wanted to race the best in the fall to see where we stand. Penn and Old Dominion are also great opponents, so all of our boats will have a tough battle on Sunday. My assistant coaches, Melanie Onufrieff, Jess Leidecker and Michelle Nance, have been a great help in getting us ready to race this season.”
