NORFOLK, Va. – The Old Dominion rowing team ventures to the Kerr Cup regatta on Saturday in Philadelphia on the Schuylkill River.
"I'm looking forward to racing in Philly this weekend. Weather looks more favorable than last week and we have an opportunity to see fellow conference team Temple one more time before May 12th.
