CAL WOMEN'S CREW 2002: After its third-consecutive team invitation to the NCAA Championships Regatta, Cal women's crew is established as one of the premier programs in the country, and looks to challenge for the 2002 national title. Fourth-year head coach Dave O'Neill returns nearly his entire team from 2001, which placed sixth at NCAAs last May.The youth which marked last season has developed into experience, as 18 of the 20 rowers who competed at the 2001 NCAA Championships return.
