LAKE NATOMA, Calif. - The USD women's rowing team got off to a strong start to their fall racing season this past weekend when they competed in the Head of the American on Lake Natoma near Sacramento, and then raced in the Row for the Cure on Mission Bay the following day.

At the Head of the American, USD rowers raced multiple races and totaled over 15,000 meters - more than any other team at the regatta - and turned in a number of strong performances against many of the best crews on the West Coast. The Toreros raced against Pac-12 and WCC opponents, among others.

The top finish on the day for USD came from their Varsity 4+ B boat, which claimed ninth place with a time of 19:45.2 on Lake Natoma's 5,000 meter course. They finished less than a second behind a USC boat. The Toreros' A boat in that race, came in right behind their teammates in 10th place with a time of 19:50.4. USD's two other fours finished back-to-back at 20:26.3 and 20:33.3, respectively.

The Toreros' Varsity 8 A boat claimed 10th place in their race with a time of 17:51.7, finishing right behind a boat from the University of Washington and just ahead of a number of other Pac-12 boats. USD saw their Varsity 8 B finish with a time of 18:22.9, right in front of an eight from WCC rival Saint Mary's.

USD kept the strong momentum going into Sunday's race action to help benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation for breast cancer awareness and research. The Row for the Cure brought together local crews from Southern California for a good cause.

The Toreros put together more positive race results in that regatta by earning top finishes in each event they competed in. USD had two Open Eight boats, two Novice Eights, a Freshman Eight, five Open Fours, and two singles in action on Sunday. Like Head of the American, USD rowers raced in multiple events throughout the morning.

The Toreros now turn their attention to the San Diego Fall Classic on Nov. 10th, where they aim to hold their title of the fastest team on Mission Bay.
