On the heels of a tremendous showing at the San Diego Crew Classic, the Trojans reeled in their highest national ranking in program history. The USC Trojans' Varsity Eight received eleven first place votes, earning 471 points in the Apr. 4 Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association/US Rowing poll.

Jumping six places in the rankings to No. 2, the Women of Troy only trail No. 1 Brown University by four points with the Lady Bears receiving the same amount of first place votes as the Trojans with eleven. Ohio State was ranked third, followed by Yale and California, last weeks No. 1 division I crew. Yale earned one first-place vote, as did No. 6 Princeton and No. 10 Washington.

The No. 2 ranking is both the highest since coaches Zenon Babraj and Kelly Babraj took over the team in 2003 and in the history of the USC program. In 2006, the Trojans reached No. 3 entering the NCAA Championships.

USC will travel to Boston, Ma. for the Charles River Challenge, racing the Varsity Eights, JV Eights and a Varsity Four boat on Apr. 14-15.
