Toreros ready for WCC Championship

April 26, 2010

DEXTER LAKE, Ore.- Last weekend the Toreros traveled to Dexter Lake near Eugene, OR to compete against two Pac-10 schools NO.12 ranked UCLA and No. 16 ranked Oregon State in a three-team dual. Previously undefeated in the Varsity 8, the Toreros winning streak came to end finishing a few seconds short of UCLA. This was the first time, in recent years, that the Toreros have been invited to dual Oregon State along side another NCAA Top 16 Championship team.

The Torero's Varsity 8 had a solid race jumping ahead of OSU in the first 1000 meters and maintaining contact with UCLA. After a closely contested battle, the race was decided at the finish line when the Toreros crossed the line 1.1 seconds behind OSU and 3.9 seconds behind UCLA with a time of 6:33.85.

In the Second Varsity 8 and the Varsity 4 races, the Toreros pushed to 1000 meters with both squads but in the end came up short, crossing the line in third place.

"Having the opportunity to race those strong teams was a great experience and the team is motivated to take what they learned and apply it to our next race" said Coach Cupini

This coming weekend is race-free for San Diego to prepare for the West Coast Conference championship scheduled for Friday, April 30 followed by the Western Intercollegiate Rowing Association Regional Championship on Saturday and Sunday. The Toreros came in second place overall in the WCC's in 2009 and medaled in the top three varsity events at WIRA's.
