DURHAM, N.C. - The Duke rowing team opens the 2013 spring season on Saturday in a showdown against Clemson and Eastern Michigan on Lake Hartwell in Clemson, S.C.

Duke will compete in the varsity eight, second varsity eight, varsity four, second varsity four and the novice eight, sending six total boats including two novice eights. The meet will include five races beginning with the varsity eight at 9 a.m. The final race of the day, the novice eight, will push off at 10:20 a.m.

Duke is coming off of a successful spring in which they placed first in the Championship 8, Championship 4, and Open 2- at the head of the Hooch as well as a top-10 finish in the open eight at the Princeton Chase. Leading Duke into opening weekend will be senior Emily Theys and sophomore Claire Vannelli who helped Duke win all three races at the Hooch.

With ten seniors and six juniors, the Blue Devils have one of their most experienced squads in years. The varsity eight features four upperclassmen but also three freshmen who will make their spring debuts in Duke's top boat. Powering the varsity eight will be Theys, Vannelli, Grace Cassidy, Laura Sciarrino, Tara Dalton, Hannah Hewitt, Alex Stonehill and Katie Dukovich.

Following the Clemson meet, Duke will head to Oak Ridge, Tenn., to compete in the Louisville Invitational, a two-day event that begins on March 16.
