Clemson, SC – Clemson’s rowing schedule for the 2009-10 season was announced on Monday by Head Coach Richard Ruggieri. The Tigers will host five regattas this spring, including the ACC Championships.

Clemson will compete in two head races this fall, including the Head of the Broad and the Head of the Hooch.

Clemson concludes its fall racing at the Head of the Hooch on November 7-8, where four Tiger boats finished first last season.

The Tigers will open the spring season with a home regatta on March 6, 2010. Clemson will host regattas the following three weekends, including races against Boston University, Alabama, Indiana, Purdue, Marist and Cornell.

Clemson will travel to Virginia on April 3 to take part in the ACC & Big 10 Challenge. The following weekend, the team will travel to Los Angeles, CA to race against UCLA and Southern California.

After traveling to Oak Ridge, Tennessee last year for the ACC Championships, the conference regatta will return to Lake Hartwell for the eighth time.
