Cal Varsity 8+ Ranked No. 1 in USRowing Poll

April 8, 2009

BERKELEY - California's varsity 8+ moved up to No. 1 in the USRowing top 20 national poll that came out Wednesday, reflecting the Golden Bears' victory against a strong field in the San Diego Crew Classic's Copley Cup grand final on April 5. Cal's top boat was ranked No. 3 in the previous poll.

Cal collected 347 points in the latest poll to 331 for No. 2 Wisconsin, though the Badgers garnered 12 first-place votes to Cal's six. Washington (329 points), whose varsity 8+ lost to Cal in the Copley Cup grand final, dropped from No. 1 to No. 3. Harvard (308), which was third in the Copley Cup, is No. 4 and Stanford (288), which was fourth in the Copley Cup, is No. 5.

Oregon State, at No. 15, is the only other Pac-10 team currently ranked in the USRowing poll. The Bears next take on the Beavers on April 19 on Redwood Shores, Calif.
