UT's women's rowing team took to familiar waters Saturday at the 23rd Head

of the Tennessee regatta and won treats rather than tricks.

Tennessee entered the three races, finishing first in two and fifth in

another. In the College 8+, the Lady Vols finished first (17:07.66), fourth

(17:40.66), seventh (18:12.52), eighth (18:22.52) and 15th (19:43.98).

In the College 4+, the Lady Vols continued their winning streak, finishing

with times of 19:10.14 and 19:16.07, respectively. Finally, in the Novice

College 4+, the Orange and White took fifth place with a clocking of

19:29.36.

"I am very pleased with today's results and I thought the highlight was the

College 4+," said UT head coach Lisa Glenn. "I thought all of the boats

showed poise and determination in all of the races."

Next for the Lady Vols will be the Head of the Chattahoochee regatta on

Saturday.
