USC Wins Two-Of-Three At Head Of The American

Oct. 30, 2004

LOS ANGELES - The USC women's rowing team opened its fall racing schedule on Saturday, Oct. 30, at the Head of the American on the banks of the American River at Lake Natoma. Racing five boats in three events, the Women of Troy placed no lower than fifth and won two of its three races.

Hosted by the CSUS Aquatic Center and featuring West Coast rowing programs, the one-day regatta was a great success for the Trojans' first outing of the year. USC split its Varsity and Novice rosters into two Varsity Eight crews, two Varsity Four boats and one Novice Eight crew.

Thanks to a one-minute penalty enforced against California, the Women of Troy's 'A' boat won the Varsity Four race in a time of 20:50. The Golden Bears raced three boats and finished second, third and fourth, while USC's 'B' boat completed the course in 21:40 for fifth place.

The Trojans' other first-place finish came in the Novice race. USC seemed to ease past the competition, finishing 11 seconds ahead of second-place Cal (18:26) in 18 minutes and 15 seconds.

The Women of Troy just missed a third victory on Saturday afternoon by four seconds in the most competitive match-up of the day. USC's 'A' and 'B' boats placed second and third in the Women's Open Eight division in times of 17:02 and 17:03.
