Pitt rowers: Laptops, wallets, uniforms taken before regatta

PHILADELPHIA (AP) " The University of Pittsburgh rowing team says wallets, laptops and uniforms were among items stolen from team vans as they were preparing for a big race in Philadelphia.

The team says the vans were broken into Thursday on a road running along Philadelphia's Schuylkill (SKOOL'-kil) River, where the Dad Vail Regatta was getting underway Friday.

Team president Anthony Ascoli tells Pittsburgh TV station WTAE that some members were in tears over the thefts.

But a post on the team's Facebook page said they were trying to stay focused on the race.

Police are investigating.
