SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The USD women's rowing team is primed to kick off the 2014 spring season at the Longhorn Invitational this Saturday and Sunday in Austin, Tex. This is the fourth consecutive year USD has competed in the Longhorn Invitational, a 2,000-meter course on Lady Bird Lake with a dual meet format. Like the past three seasons, the event will feature prominent national programs such as Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas State, UCF, Yale, Canisius, and Tulsa.

For the second straight year, the Longhorn Invitational will include a scoring system and an overall team champion. USD Women’s rowing enjoys this format as it puts their team in very competitive races throughout the weekend.

The slate will start on Saturday morning with USD going up against Central Florida (3V8, 2V4, 1V4, 2V8, 1V8). Saturday's afternoon session will feature duals against either Oklahoma or Kansas State. The weekend will conclude with a morning session on Sunday that has yet to be finalized.

 “For our seniors this is our last race in Texas. We love competing there because the race is so well organized and give us the important race feeling,”senior Captain Michelle Campbell said.  “The team is excited to show the strength and speed they developed in their recent Winter Camp and scrimmages with Minnesota and Loyola Marymount University.” Along with Campbell the other seniors competing are Taylor Kendzierski, Brianna Lamb, Jenn Travis, Courtney Olson and Ellycia Halden.

Last season USD won a total of 10 races in the Longhorn Invitational, defeating Tulsa, Kansas State, Oklahoma and Iowa over the course of the weekend.

So far this spring, the Toreros have competed in scrimmages on their home waters of Mission Bay against the likes of Minnesota (Feb. 7-9), local programs UC San Diego, San Diego State, and Orange Coast College (Feb. 22), and Loyola Marymount (Mar. 3).

This will be the first of several tests towards the all-important WCC Conference Championships being held in May in Sacramento. The University of San Diego has won the WCC Championship in three of the last four years. The WCC Champion will compete for the NCAA Championships in Indianapolis at the end of May.

Unofficial results will be posted throughout the Longhorn Invitational at Twitter.com/USDWomensRowing or on USD Women’s Rowing Facebook page.
