NEW YORK – The Columbia lightweight rowing team will compete in a pair of competitions on Saturday, April 6. The Lions will first travel to Annapolis to take on Navy at 7 a.m. on the Severn River before trekking back north to face Delaware on Overpeck Lake at approximately 2 p.m.

Columbia’s lightweights had last weekend off after opening the season on March 23 against FIT on Canal 54 in Fellsmere, Fla.

Navy is 0-2 on the young season, and will host its first race of the spring season. The Midshipmen most recently took on Yale on March 30 in Princeton, where the varsity eight was edged by 13.9 seconds.

The Lions defeated Navy at Overpeck Lake last year by more than two lengths.

The Blue Hens raced against Harvard and MIT on the Charles on March 30.
