Rowing Takes Second At Pac-10 Championships

May 13, 2001

Rancho Cordova, Calif. - The USC women's rowing team was unable to come away with the titles it had hoped for at the 2001 Pac-10 Championships held on Lake Natoma Sunday afternoon.

Despite having given Washington it's only loss of the season at the San Diego Crew Classic on April 8, the Trojans' fourth-ranked Varsity Eight boat could not get past the Huskies on Lake Natoma's 2,000-meter course. Avenging the earlier loss, Washington pulled away in the final 500 meters and posted a three-second victory over the Women of Troy in the grand final. USC finished the course in 6:43.70, behind the Huskies who crossed the line at 6:40.60

Seeded third upon entering the race, USC's JV Eight was surpassed by Washington (7:06.79), Washington State (7:10.39) and Cal (7:11.60) in the grand final to finish fourth in a time of 7-minutes, 21.29. Both the Varsity Four and Novice Eights completed their competitions in the petite final, finishing 10th and 14th respectively.

USC will now await the women's NCAA field to be announced on May 15. The Championships will take place May 24-26 on Lake Lanier in Gainesville, Ga.
