In rowing, a head race is a time-trial event in which competing boats do not start simultaneously but instead are staggered onto the course in roughly 15-second intervals. Drexel faced strong competition at the regatta, including the University of Pennsylvania, the United States Naval Academy, the United States Military Academy, Saint Joseph’s University and Temple University, among many others.
