For the 14th straight season, the NCAA open rowing championship regatta will include the Princeton Tigers. The second-ranked Princeton squad earned one of 16 invitations to the Memorial Day weekend competition at the Sacramento State Aquatic Center in Gold River, California.

Two days after winning medals in each of the three major competitions at the EAWRC Championships in Cherry Hill, N.J., Princeton continued its streak of reaching every NCAA championship competition since the inaugural event in 1997. The Tigers' last NCAA title came in the first varsity event in 2006, when an undefeated Tiger crew routed the field on nearby Mercer Lake in West Windsor, N.J.

Princeton won't go into the 2010 championships with quite the same dominant 1V, though it certainly will go in with three impressive boats. The Princeton 1V was undefeated in the regular season and was edged by Yale by less than one second in the EAWRC final; no other crew was within 10 seconds of either boat, including NCAA invitee Brown.

The Princeton 2V went into the Eastern championships as the second seed, but a strong day sent that Tiger crew to the top of the medal stand. The varsity four earned a bronze medal after a very strong regular season.
