Toreros Show Depth at Clemson Invite
April 17, 2016

CLEMSON, S.C. -- On the final day of the Clemson Invitational, the USD women's rowing team showed their program's depth by having three boats beat ranked crews in their respective heats. The Toreros, who were just outside the latest top 20 rankings, consistently showed all weekend that their speed matches up with the nation's top crews.

"This weekend was a great opportunity to race teams we haven't raced since the last time we went to the NCAA's," Uche Anyanwu said following Sunday's races. "We had the chance to race many of the top teams in the country and the fact that we were in the mix gives us the spark we need to continue pushing through training for WCC's."

For the second day in a row the USD V8+ beat a ranked school. The Toreros began the day by finishing in 6:49.5, ahead of No. 20 Louisville (6:50.4), Central Florida (6:57.0), and Cornell (7:03.9)

The USD V4+ also outlasted a ranked school in their race. The Toreros crossed the finish line in 7:42.1, claiming fourth place and finishing ahead of No. 14 Washington State (7:43.2), Cornell (7:57.2), and Central Florida (8:08.2).

The Torero 2V4+ (7:42.3) came in second, finishing just a few seconds behind No. 4 Ohio State (7:37.3), the defending national champions. USD's time beat No. 20 Louisville (7:44.7), Cornell (7:50.2), and Central Florida (8:14.0).

The USD 2V8+ came in fifth in their heat with a time of 7:04.3, less than three seconds behind No. 17 Harvard-Radcliffe (7:01.7). The Toreros easily finished ahead of Cornell (7:10.4) and Central Florida (7:24.5).

The Toreros have next weekend off and then will compete in the WIRA Championships April 30-May 1 on Lake Natoma, the site of the annual WCC Championships.
