Tiger Rowing to Host Clemson Challenge on Saturday

March 14, 2008

Clemson, SC – The Clemson rowing team will host Indiana, Ithaca, Pennsylvania, and Purdue on Lake Hartwell at 9:00 am on Saturday. This will be the first 2,000-meter race of the season for the Tigers. The Clemson Challenge has been designated as a Solid Orange Event, so Tiger fans are encouraged to attend.

Clemson is coming off a sweep of ACC rival Boston College last Saturday, so the Tigers will look to build upon their recent success this weekend. The Varsity 8+ race will get underway at 9:15 on Saturday with a crew from each school competing. The second Varsity 8+ will follow with a boat from each school and two from Purdue. Clemson will enter two boats in the Varsity 4+ race, which is slated to begin at 9:30. The Novice 8+ race will get underway at 10:00, with the Novice 4+ race following.

The Men’s US National Team, who spent the winter training in Clemson, will also be on hand to take part in the Clemson Challenge.
