    LOS ANGELES - The 15th-ranked USC women's rowing team will cross the country this weekend for a head-to-head dual with eighth-ranked Princeton on Sunday, May 3, on the waters of Lake Carnegie. Racing begins at 9 a.m. ET.

    It is senior day for the Tigers and is Princeton's final race before the Ivy League Championships. It is also the final race for the Women of Troy before the Pac-12 Championships.

    The last time the Trojans visited Lake Carnegie, USC faced Princeton and Yale in three-boat races on April 14, 2012. That day, the Trojans' varsity eight and second varsity eight each won their races while the Tigers won the varsity four, with Yale in second and the Trojans in third. Princeton finished in sixth placed in the 2014 NCAA championships and edged the Trojans for third place in the 2013 championships; both times at Eagle Creek Park in Indianapolis, Ind.

    The Trojans won a fifth straight Jessop-Whittier Cup at the San Diego Crew Classic (March 29) and are coming off a 14th straight dual victory over crosstown rival UCLA (April 11).
