(Indianapolis, IN) - On Day Two of the 2014 NCAA Division I Rowing Championships at the Indianapolis Rowing Center at Eagle Creek Park, all three USD boats placed in the top-3 of their respective C/D Semifinal heats. With their strong performances today, all three Torero boats advance to Sunday's C Final (places 13-18) with hopes of more solid racing and of reaching their goal of finishing in the top sixteen in the country. The Toreros were paced by the Varsity Eight I today as they placed first with an impressive open water finish over their competition, while the Varsity Eight II and Varsity Four each placed a solid third in their five-team heats.

"I think that winning the semi-final race today proves that USD women's rowing isn't here at NCAA's just because of the automatic qualifier," said Torero senior Brianna Lamb, a member of the Varsity Eight I. "We are here because we really are fast enough to be in the Sweet 16 and we are here to prove something. This is an incredible experience for our team and we are going to prove we deserve to be here racing with the top dogs. This is a whole team effort and I'm really proud of the results from our boats. We are all really excited about placing top 3 in all boats today, and tomorrow should be an extremely exciting day of racing."

USD's Varsity Eight 1 (cox: Erica Mayer, Mary Jo Keys, Michelle Campbell, Brianna Lamb, Nneka Anyanwu, Megan Goodman, Cristina Morcom, Taylor Kendzierski, Courntey Olson) ) turned in an impressive time of 6:48.03 in earning first place and an open water win over runner-up Wisconsin (6:52.12) and teams from Northeastern (6:55.05), Boston University (6:56.94) and Massachusetts (7:05.84).

USD's Varsity Eight II (cox: Karli Wittenberg, Megan McNamara, Jennifer Travis, Avalon Koenig, Carla Kinnunen, Uche Anyanwu, Rachel Kincaid, Ellycia Halden and Allyson Ward) covered the 2,000 meter course in 7:05.36 as they beat out boats from Boston University (7:18.42) and Jacksonville (7:42.38) to place third. The Toreros followed up boats from Wisconsin (6:55.48) and Oklahoma (7:01.61).

USD's Varsity Four (cox: Rachel Michel, Kathleen Petrich, Hannah Saddler, Abigail McLauchlin and McKenna Wray) placed third with a time of 8:00.35 as they closed fast over the final 500 meters to stay within striking distance of runner-up Louisville (7:58.23). The Toreros beat out boats from Massachusetts (8:05.99 and Boston University (8:13.76), while UCLA won the heat with a time of 7:55.35).
