SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The Toreros completed their most successful fall season to date with two wins and three second place showings at the San Diego Fall Classic on November 10th.

One win came in the Open 4, which was basically the JV 8 split in two, with USD's A entry of Berkley Brown, Quinn Montgomery, Brandon de Caussin, Daniel Hearst, and Ryan Sandy at the stroke seat. USD's 2nd entry in the Open 4 finished in the silver position, just nine seconds behind with coxswain Lauren Takahashi, Anthony Mejia, Charlie Penn, Joe Wier, and Carlo Rivera, demonstrating depth and an inspiring show of strength.

The other win came in the Men's Masters eight, which was comprised of USD Alumni, mostly from the classes of 1986 and 1987. Coxswain Pilar Malim ('13), Neal Stehly, Treak Tasker, Mike Gerhardt, Brett O'Keefe, Mike Weber, Will Creagan, Jaime Bea, and Dominique Scott at the bow seat.

"All of the entries did a fine job on Sunday. The win in the Masters eight was a real pleasure," stated head coach Brooks Dagman. "Those guys did not have a single practice together prior to the race and still posted the fastest raw time in their race. They raced other entries comprised of athletes that we considerably younger and still rowed away from them!"



The Varsity 8 which raced in the Open 8 and was comprised of coxswain Torrey Ray, Rory Kew, Henri Hicks, Gary Bastien, Will Bastien, Braeden Drouillard, Taylor Terheggen, John Bacic, Patrick McPolin. Finished second to UC San Diego, with a small margin separating the boats. The Frosh 8 also finished second to UCSD, coxswan Kai Morse, Will Roman, Jack Pokalsky, Nick Watson, Mike DeMaio, Parker Danz, Matt Kaumeryer, Luke Uetrecht, Pierce Salamack but were almost two minutes in front of the third place finisher Arizona State.

With the Fall racing complete, the focus for the Toreros is to finish strong in the classroom and train with the Spring Sprint season in sight. The Toreros will not return to the race course until February 22, 2014 with the City Championships on Mission Bay.
