After an impressive sixth place finish in a 55-boat race at the Princeton Chase Regatta, the Columbia women’s rowing team heads to Charlottesville, Va. on Sunday. The Lions will be gunning to beat the team that won the Princeton Chase: No. 1 Virginia. Last year at the Rivanna Romp, Virgina’s A, C, and B teams finished first, second and third, respectively, and the Cavaliers have dominated their first two races to start this season. The Lions finished 38 seconds behind Virginia at the Princeton Chase, and 20 seconds behind second-place Princeton.
