Rhode Island Set to Race Strong Field in Doc Hosea Invitational Sunday

KINGSTON, R.I. – Rhode Island will get a taste of heat racing when it competes at the 10-team Doc Hosea Invitational Sunday on Cooper River in Cherry Hill, N.J.

The event will feature a team points system over two rounds of racing, with the overall points leader taking home a championship trophy. The opening round will have two flights with five teams each. The top two teams in each flight plus the two next fastest times will advance to the Grand Final in each flight. The remaining four schools will move to the Petite Final.

Heat 1 in each flight will have Boston University, Northeastern, Pennsylvania, Rutgers and Syracuse. Rhode Island will be in Heat 2, along with Dartmouth, Minnesota, Navy and Atlantic 10 rival Massachusetts.
