Complete Sunday Results

GOLD RIVER, Calif. -- The USD women's rowing team's novice crews wrapped up the WIRA Championships with their Novice Four taking first place and their Novice Eight grabbing second.

"The freshman raced hard and put together a very strong showing this weekend," Head Coach Kim Cupini said. "I was really happy with their performance and it was exciting to the Novice Four do so well and the Novice Eight put in a great fight against Stanford"

Competing on the same course as the upcoming WCC and NCAA Championships, the Toreros followed up a strong first day with excellent performances in the Grand Finals. The Novice Four finished in 7:48.4, eight seconds ahead of the second place finishers, Long Beach State (7:56.9). They also crossed the finish line before the WCC's Saint Mary's (8:01.4) and LMU (8:13.5), and also Orange Coast College (8:20.3) and UC Irvine (8:20.6).

Later on in the day, the Torero Novice Eight finished just 1.2 seconds behind No. 6 Stanford with a time of 7:04.5, beating out OCC (7:24.1), Seattle (7:32.1), and Sacramento State (7:32.4).

"The freshmen class came together as a team and absolutely raced our hearts out," Alice Byrne said, the coxswain for both crews. "You could feel the energy and determination in both boats and it was a great way to finish freshman year."

The Toreros Varsity crews will be back in action this Saturday when they take on the Texas Longhorns in a dual meet.
