Toreros' V8 Grab Silver at Premiere Windermere Event
May 7, 2016

SEATTLE, Wash. -
The USD women's rowing team participated in the 30th annual Windermere Cup in Seattle Saturday morning. The world-renown regatta, which features 21 races and over 800 rowers, celebrates opening day of boating season in Seattle and provided a unique experience for the Torero rowers.

"We had an unbelievable experience that we will never forget and we are so appreciative of Windermere's generosity and the invitation to come here and get to experience such a wild and amazing crowd," Karli Wittenberg, cox of the V8+, said after the race. "Washington and Cambridge were such great and truly welcoming competitors"

In the Windermere Cup, the regatta's featured race, the USD V8+ crossed the finish line in 6:34.266 to earn silver, beating Cambridge by ten seconds (6:44.222) and coming in just after the No. 4 Huskies (6:25.902)

The USD V4+ was the first to race, taking second place with a time of 7:35.197. They finished ahead of the University of Victoria (7:42.553) and Portland (8:21.097), and behind No. 4 Washington.

The 2V8+, competing in the Erickson Cascade Cup, finished in third place. They crossed the finish line ahead of Western Washington, and behind the two Washington crews.

"We want to thank the University of Washington, Windermere, and th  Seattle Yacht Club for our invitation and their hospitality at this tradition filled event," Head Coach Kim Cupini said. "Also, we thank Washington and Cambridge for the good racing and competition."

The Toreros wrap up their regular season next Saturday when they compete in the WCC Championships on Lake Natoma.
