PHILADELPHIA – The University of California San Diego men’s rowing team travels across the country this weekend, heading to Philadelphia for a scrimmage with St. Joseph’s and to take part in the 53rd annual Kerr Cup Regatta.
On Friday, the Tritons and Hawks will scrimmage in preparation for the Kerr Cup Regatta. The following day, UC San Diego will participate in the Kerr Cup Regatta for the fourth-straight year.

“We are really looking forward to see what progress we have made since our last meeting with Drexel, as well as testing our speed against East Coast competition before ending our regular season racing at WIRA and Western Sprints,” said Head Coach Zach Johnson. “This regatta will set us up well for the last stretch of big races coming up.”
