NEW YORK – The Columbia women’s rowers will look to build on their strong start when they race Penn and Yale for the Connell Cup in Derby, Conn., on Saturday, March 29.

The Lions cruised to three victories in Fellsmere, Fla., highlighted by an 11-second triumph in the varsity eight race, defeating Barry and FIT.

Last year, Columbia’s top crew earned its first ever win in a Connell Cup race, using a strong start to blow by the Quakers and Bulldogs. However, unlike most Cup regattas the trophy goes to the team with the best aggregate results and Yale claimed the crown.
