Oct. 31, 2013


 Race Schedule | Race Information

The University of Tennessee women's rowing team travels to Chattanooga on Saturday and Sunday to compete in the South's largest head race, the Head of the Hooch. The two-day regatta takes place at Ross's Landing on the Tennessee River. The regatta is a head race, competitors row a 5,000 meter (3.1 mile) course.

This season the Lady Vols will compete in the Women's Championship 8+, Women's Novice 8+, Women's Championship 4+ on Saturday and will race in the Women's Open 2- and the Women's Open 8+ on Sunday.

The Lady Vols began racing in the Head of the Hooch, also known as the Head of the Chattanoochee, in 1995 when the race was held in Georgia. In 2005, due to the large increases in entries each year, the regatta moved to the Chattanooga Ross's Landing Riverfront venue. The venue and city have the capability to accommodate the continue increase in rowers and spectators each year.

In 2012, the Head of the Hooch raced 1245 boats (49 events) on Saturday and 653 boats (38 events) on Sunday. Tennessee has a storied history with the race, the Lady Vols have earned a total of 39 medals at the head race. Last season, the Lady Vols posted four top-ten finishes.
