Rowing Kicks-Off Spring Racing Season This Saturday
March 18, 2002
LOS ANGELES, Calif. - The USC women's rowing team kicks-off its 2002 spring season this Saturday, March 23, when it hosts San Diego State at 9 a.m. at the USC boathouse located at Berth 192 in the port of Los Angeles.
The Trojans last raced on Nov. 4 at the Newport Autumn Rowing Festival where the Varsity Eight placed first, finishing nearly one minute ahead of second-place finisher UC Davis and 1:11 ahead of fifth-place finisher San Diego State.
Having already started the spring racing season, the Aztecs are coming off a pair of third-place finishes for the Varsity Eight and Novice Eight crews against 2001 ACC champion Virginia last Saturday (March 16) at the Rivianna Reservoir in Charlottesville, Vir.
This season, USC is looking to surpass its achievements of 2001 - its most successful season in program history. The 2001 Varsity Eight boat finished fourth at the NCAA Championships (its highest finish ever) and captured the prestigious Jessop Whittier Cup at the San Diego Crew Classic by upsetting nine-time defending champion Washington.
