Philadelphia, PA- Philadelphia University’s home for their men’s and women’s rowing teams has undergone a name change. The team’s boathouse, formerly known as the Whitemarsh Boat Club, will now be known as the Hines Rowing Center.
The Hines Rowing Center is located in Conshohocken, PA, on the banks of the Schuylkill River.
Since adding men’s and women’s rowing in 2006 under the tutelage of Coach Chris O’Brien and Athletic Director Tom Shirley, the teams have had unprecedented success. In 2009-10, the women’s squad finished the season third in the nation at the NCAA Championships in Gold River, CA.
