DURHAM, N.C. - The Duke rowing team will resume action this weekend, traveling to Chattanooga, Tenn., to compete in the Head of the Hooch on Saturday morning.

The Blue Devils will send a trio of novice boats into competition this weekend with one novice 8+ boat and a pair of novice 4+ boats. The women’s novice 4+ competition is set for a 10:38 a.m. start, while the novice 8+ boats will kick off competition at 2:37 p.m.

Duke’s novice 8+ crews saw great success a week ago at the Princeton Chase, with both crews notching a top-five finish. The Blue Devils’ top crew finished in second place with a time of 16:04.272, while the second crew finished only two spots behind in fourth with a time of 17:20.116.

The Head of the Chattahoochee is one of the world’s largest rowing regattas held every year on the first Saturday and Sunday of November, with over 2,000 boats racing across the two-day span. The regatta is organized and hosted by the Atlanta Rowing Club of Roswell, Ga., and the Lookout Rowing Club of Chattanooga, Tenn. The Blue Devils look to improve upon their performance from a year ago, where the novice 8+ captured sixth-place, and the championship 4+ finished 23rd. 

Following this weekend’s race, Duke will conclude its fall season at the Rivanna Romp, which will take place on Nov. 11 in Charlottesville, Va.
