fishington and Lee Crew to Race
Virginia in Richmond
Tim Richmond News Leader of
i&t Thursday says:
An eight-oared shell race Between
/ashington and L-jo and the Vir
iuias will bethe featured " ?* vent
f the annual regatta of the Virginia
loat Club here this summer. The
egatta this year will be in the na
ure of a dual affair between .the lo
al cl ab and the aquatic athletes of
be Lexington university.
The regatta will be held shortly
fter the end of the college year,
.bout the middle of June. While
Washington and T*ee have never put
in eight on the water, they have
i large number of crack oarsmen
ind will turn out a good crew.
Athletic relations between Wash
ngton and I*ee and the \ irgioia
Boatclub, while aiways friendly, I
Ita ve been at a standstill for several
years. Some years ago they met
Bvery summer in four-oared gig
races. Three races were held here
and one in Lexington, three were
won by the college oarsmen.
The old relations are to be renew?
ed this summer and it is likely thal
hereafter the college men will take
an active part in the boat club .e
Washington nnd Lee takes an ac?
tive interest in aquatics and for a
number of years they have main?
tained two strong four-oared crews.
These crews, known as the Harry
Lee and Albert Sidney crews, meet
every spring in an annual race on
tbe upper James. There is keec
rivalry between the two clubs.
The plan this year is f> r the twe
crews to combine after their rac*
and come down together to gt
against the Virginias. Ry taking
the pick of the university oarsmec
it is expected that they will tt*j*r
out a strong crew.
The boat club here.has two prac
tically new eight oared shelis. Om
of these will be placed at the dis
posal of the Washingtun ' and Le*
crew both for practice and for th
race. The college oarsmen wi li com
to Richmond a week or more balor
the race and train for the event.
