Alex Bowlby and his Penn lightweight teammates didn't have the Henley Royal Regatta front of mind when they lined up for the final at the Eastern Sprints this spring. They were not the favored crew to win the 2019 season conference championship, and they were racing in one of the least protected lanes on that windy Worcester day.

But it didn’t take long for him to remember after crossing the line in first and taking the school's first Sprints title since 1976, that a trip to the storied British regatta was part of the prize. Penn coach Colin Farrell had been telling his crew all season - win at Sprints, or the IRA, and you go to Henley.
