Toreros Show Strength at Stanford Invite
Taylor Terheggen and John Bacic.

April 21, 2014

REDWOOD SHORES - The University of San Diego men's rowing team had another outstanding weekend of racing at the Stanford Invite.

On Friday against Oregon State, the Varsity 8, of Torrey Ray, Rory Kew, Henri Hicks, Gary Bastien, Will Bastien, Alex La Bruno, Taylor Terheggen, John Bacic, Patrick McPolin, lead for a time until the headwind took effect and finished a bit off the winning pace. It is worth noting however that our Varsity 8 posted a time 1.4 seconds (half a length) faster than the #13 team in the country, the Badgers from Wisconsin. Our JV 8 boat, which consisted of Lauren Takahashi, Ryan Sandy, Quinn Montgomery, Brandon de Caussin, Daniel Hearst, Braeden Drouillard, Anthony Mejia, Charlie Penn, Joe Wier, had a much closer race with Oregon State, but also fell just behind the Beavers from Corvallis.

 

 

Saturday dawned a new day, with the results from Friday evening in perspective and a fire in their belly, both Varsity and JV 8s were able to take control early in the races against hometown rival UCSD and come away with fairly convincing wins, with the Varsity 8 cracking a little bit of open water ahead, and the JV 8 about a length of open water in front of UCSD's crews respectively.

As the final race of the regatta against Stanford loomed large, so did the prospect of another hard headwind, in which Stanford was able to use their oarsmen's size and power more effectively, and our boats were not able to respond in kind.

The next step is 4 weeks of preparation as we move toward our final regular season race of the season May 17th at Lake Natoma... the IRA Qualifier!!! We will be working on putting all of the pieces together that we have been working on throughout this entire year and channeling roughly 600 hours of training into 6 minutes of racing! 100 hours per minute, and 3 hours per stroke... controlled, meticulously crafted explosions for one shot down the race course!
