Weekend Overflowing with College Rowing

Attention, Go! (Photo: B. Kitch)
All of intercollegiate rowing's No. 1 teams are set to be in action this weekend*, with the top-ranked Washington men at Redwood Shores to take on Stanford (details here), NCAA No. 1 USC taking on No. 2 Cal and No. 9 Stanford at the Lake Natoma Invitational (follow @NatomaInvite on Twitter for updates throughout the weekend), SIRAs taking over Oak Ridge, TN (follow @oakridgerowing for live results) and pitting ACRA men's No. 1 Virginia against rivals The George Washington University (last year's SIRAs champ), Jacksonville, FIT, Temple, Delaware, and others, while women's ACRA no. 1 Purdue will take on Crew Classic champions Central Oklahoma, Jacksonville, FIT & more. Last, but certainly not least, the No. 1 Stanford women's lightweights will take on Harvard-Radcliffe, while the No. 1 Harvard men's lightweights are set to do do battle with Navy (though these events may be postponed due to ongoing police activity in Boston—if not, however, you can view free streaming video of the events here).

Also, last year's NCAA Champions and early season No. 1 Virginia (now at No. 3) will be in action at the Clemson Invite, along with No. 4 Ohio State and No. 5 UCLA.

Keep an eye on our Rowing Chat Twitter feed for further updates, and here's hoping that the situation in Boston is resolved as soon as possible.

*(with the exception of NCAA DII's top-ranked Western Washington)
