“We’re always pumped for our first road trip,” Davis said. “It’s a chance to test ourselves and everybody’s excited.”
Davis and the Crimson Tide are riding the momentum of the Sept. 27 win over the University of Alabama at Huntsville, where the team swept all three events.
The Crimson Tide is traveling to the Volunteer State this weekend to participate in the Head of the Chattanooga Regatta, where it will be competing against many different schools, including conference rival Tennessee.
“We want to benchmark how we do against Tennessee, and we would like to see if we can beat them again,” Davis said. “It gives us an idea of what we need to work on. Early in the fall is a great time to sort things out.”
While Tennessee is the primary rival for this weekend’s regatta, Allison said team members are focused on improving their performance.
“You always want to beat your competition,” Allison said. “But we want to have our best individual performance and see how we do against them from there.”
