April 3, 2016

Complete Results

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The USD women's rowing team closed out the Crew Classic with strong performances in the V8+ and V4+ Grand Finals Sunday morning on USD's home waters of Mission Bay.

The Toreros entered the weekend just outside the CRCA Top 20, but consistently showed all weekend that they are on par with the nation's fastest crews. The new rankings come out on Tuesday.

"With a placement in the grand final, a win in the petite final, and to win an event, we are very happy with the team's performance today," Head Coach Kim Cupini said. "But we are looking forward to putting in the work to gain peed before the Clemson Invite."

The USD V4+ placed fourth in the Grand Final, crossing the finish line in 8:11.778. The Toreros finished just over two seconds behind No. 14 USC (8:09.050) and ahead of No. 20 UCLA (8.17.487) and No. 11 Washington State (8:29.552)

Competing against many of the top programs in the nation, the USD V8+ finished with an impressive time of 7:02.866 in the Jessop Whittier Invitational. USD was just barely behind conference rival No. 18 Gonzaga (7:01.894) and cruised past No. 20 UCLA (7:10.133). No. 2 California won the event with a time of 6:49.468.

The Toreros' 2V8+, which narrowly missed a place in the grand final, won the Petite Final with a time of 6:58.659, finishing ahead of No. 20 UCLA (6:59.147) and Tennessee (7:02.176) amongst others.

The USD Novice Eight came in fifth in the Grand Final, clocking in at 7:44.922 ahead of UC San Diego (8:08.732) and Santa Clara (8:35.314) of the WCC.

The USD 2V4+ (8:13.099) topped off the day with a first place finish, topping USC (8:17.356), UCLA (8:27.261), Sacramento State (8:40.684), and San Diego State (9:07.918).
