UCLA Rowing Enters Four Boats into Stanford Invitational

April 10, 2007

Redwood City, Calif. - UCLA Women's Rowing is set to compete in the 5th annual Windermere Stanford Invitational at Redwood Shores in Redwood City, Calif. on April 14-15, 2007 from 9am to 5pm. The Bruins will enter boats into the varsity 8, second varsity 8, varsity 4, and novice 8 races against crews from the University of Virginia, Central Florida, and Notre Dame.

The Bruins swept their varsity eight events in last year's competition, beating out Tennessee, Central Florida, and Clemson boats. At this year's meet, the ninth-ranked Bruins are set to match up with the seventh-ranked UVA Cavaliers and UCF on Saturday before clashing with the No.14-ranked Fighting Irish of Notre Dame on Sunday.

The UCLA second varsity eight hopes to build on their 2006 success (winning 2 of 3 races) when taking on UVA and UCF on Saturday and Notre Dame on Sunday. Similarly, the Bruin varsity four boat will take on UVA, UCF, and Notre Dame over the weekend after finishing 1st in 2 of 3 races in the previous year. UCLA's novice 8 boat will compete for the first time at the Stanford Invitational when it goes against Notre Dame's novice 8 crew on Saturday evening.
