KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - The Tennessee rowing team closes out the fall portion of its season this Saturday at the Head of the Hooch in Chattanooga, Tenn.
"We've only raced twice and now we are wrapping up the fall. We have had one very good race and one where circumstances were not what we wanted" head coach Lisa Glenn said at practice Friday morning. "We want to have a second really good race before we close up the season."
The Lady Vols have been putting in the hard work to become a championship winning team.
"We have some really good signs of good athleticism and good people to work with for the year" Glenn said. So I have no doubt that we will be able to, if everybody stays strong, healthy, and on track, do some exciting things."
"The key is going to be to accomplish targeted things in each boat in the race situation. I think they are ready to and they need to do it this Saturday. I think if they stay true to what they have set out to do within their boats, it will be a great day."
The Volunteers will be taking 11 boats to the regatta, including two varsity 8+ crews, two novice 8+ crews, two varsity 4+, three pairs, and two open 8+ crews.
The Orange and White last competed at the Head of the Hooch in 2011 where they brought home two gold medals in both the championship eight and the championship four.
