Toreros Win SD Fall Classic for Fifth Year in a Row
Nov. 12, 2017

SAN DIEGO - The Toreros placed in top spots across all events in their final race of the fall season Sunday morning.

The varsity eight crew was the first boat to cross the finish line for the fifth year in a row Sunday. The eight men lead by coxswain Will Graf out-paced UC San Diego, Orange Coast College, UCLA, San Diego State, Arizona State, Long Beach State and UC Irvine. 

USD's second varsity eight competed against both first and second crews in the Open Eight event, including San Diego's top eight. They placed seventh over all, but second among other junior varsity crews. 

The men's first freshman eight took second place, just six seconds behind OCC's top freshman eight. The second freshman eight raced in the same event as the first and took third amongst other second crews and tenth overall.

In the four event, Olson's boat earned second place with a time of 17:31, six seconds behind OCC's top four. The second four took third place over other second crews, and placed 11th overall.

Fall Classic marked the final race for the Toreros until Spring. The men will be back February 25 for their annual City Championship against San Diego State and UC San Diego.
