Tennessee has been present at every Head of the Tennessee event since the start of the program in the fall of 1995. The Lady Vols have won three straight Championship Eight races in the local fall meet.
Tennessee had a light schedule at last year's event in Knoxville, as half the team was at the Head of the Charles. The last season that UT had a full contingent in 2004, the squad took home first-place finishes in the Championship 8+ and 4+ along with the Open Two.
This year's event moves the finish line from the edge of Sequoyah Hills Park to the Volunteer Landing downtown. Racing begins at 9 a.m. this Saturday, with the Lady Vols' first race starting at 10:15 a.m. with the Novice 8+. UT's last race begins at 3:45 p.m. with the Championship 8+.
