No. 9 Women's Crew advances at NCAAs
May 31, 2002
The No. 9 Cal women's varsity eight finished third in its qualifying heat at the 2002 NCAA Championships on Eagle Creek Reservoir in Indianapolis, IN, May 31. Cal finished behind third-seed Ohio State and Princeton, but it was good enough to move Cal directly to the semifinals without needing to qualify via a repechage round of racing.
'The racing was really good and we raced with the intensity necessary to avoid the repechage and have the afternoon off, ' said coach Dave O'Neill. 'We look forward to tomorrow's semifinal and are ready for the challenge that awaits.'Cal Virginia Washington Ohio State Yale Syracuse
The semifinal draw for the Cal varsity includes Virginia, Washington, Ohio State, Yale and Syracuse. Three crews will advance to the Sunday's grand final and race for the national championship.
The Cal JV eight and varsity four will also race in the semifinals on Saturday. In one-to-the-final heats on Friday, the Cal crews finished fifth and third respectively. The JV will face Syracuse, Yale, Princeton and Michigan in a two-to-the-final format. The four will be up against Syracuse, Ohio State, Virginia and Michigan with two berth in the final on the line.
