The Tennessee Varsity Rowers will participate in their third race of the season this weekend in Chattanooga, Tenn., when they take to the water for the Head of the Hooch regatta. The Lady Vols competed in the event (formerly known as the Head of the Chattahoochee) from 1995-2002, climbing to a second-place team finish in 1997, but took the last two years off to fit the Rivanna Romp Regatta in Charlottesville, Va., into the schedule. This season, Tennessee will send squads to both events due to a change in event scheduling.

The Lady Vols will enter three shells in the Championship 8+ event to take place on Saturday at 11 a.m. Other Division I schools competing in the event are Texas, Miami, Duke, Central Florida, and Kansas.

The Head of the Hooch Regatta has traditionally been held in either Atlanta or Gainesville, Ga., but has been relocated this year to the new 21st Century River Front Venue in Chattanooga. The race will conclude at the newly renovated Ross's Landing Park.

The Lady Vols hope to build on an already successful fall campaign in which the team has collected six gold medals. Tennessee won three golds at the Chattanooga Head Race on October 8, one gold at the prestigious Head of the Charles Regatta in Boston, Mass., and three at the Head of the Tennessee Regatta in Knoxville on October 22. The varsity Championship 8+ shell also garnered a respectable 12th place finish in Boston.

The Lady Vols are back in action on Sunday, Nov. 13, at the Rivanna Romp in Charlottesville, Va. The event will conclude Tennessee's fall season.
