PHILADELPHIA, Pa. - Following a ninth place finish in the Lightweight 4 Championships at the 49th annual Head of the Charles Regatta last weekend, the Villanova rowing team returns home to Philadelphia this weekend for the Head of the Schuylkill.
The Wildcats will bring several crew teams to Boathouse Row when they take on Fordham, Holy Cross, Rochester, Rutgers, Maryland and other schools from the northeast.
Last year, Villanova fared well in several races throughout the two day event. The Wildcats earned first place at the Frosh 4 race with a 16:49.48 mark, a whole 10 seconds faster than the second place squad.
The crew also finished sixth at the Women's Frosh 8 event with a time of 16:05.77 and in the Women's Pair, the Wildcats came in fourth place with a time of 18:35.42.
This marks the final race for Villanova in the fall season.
