CLEMSON, S.C. — The Tiger rowing program opens its home schedule Saturday on Lake Hartwell. Clemson welcomes Duke and North Carolina for the 16th Carolinas Cup. The three programs will compete for the Daughtry Cup, with the winner accumulating the most points over five events of racing. Clemson won the event last season, which resumed for the first time since 2011.
The three schools will compete in the First Varsity 8+, Second Varsity 8+, Third Varsity 8+, First Varsity 4+ and Second Varsity 4+. The first race of the day is the 3V8, which gets underway at 8:30 a.m. The 1V8 will conclude the team competition at approximately 9:18 a.m. Additional scrimmage pieces will follow, but will not be part of the team scoring.
Clemson saw its season underway last weekend at the Oak Ridge Cardinal Invitational. The Tigers won three events over the course of the two-day regatta, including the 2V8 on the final day of competition.
