USC Rowing Punches Ticket to NCAA Championships
May 19, 2009
No. 12 USC will travel to the Cooper River in Cherry Hill, NJ to participate in the NCAA Championships May 29-31. The Women of Troy were one of sixteen teams chosen to participate in the team championships. This year the rules changed in that a school must qualify as a team with their varsity eight, second varsity eight and varsity four boats.
USC is coming off a fifth place team victory at the Pac-10 Championships this past weekend, including a second place finish by the varsity four team. The Women of Troy will join fellow Pac-10 squads Stanford, Washington, Oregon State and 2009 Pac-10 Champion California in New Jersey.
In the varsity eight competition, USC is in heat three against Virginia, Michigan, Clemson, Princeton and Dartmouth. That race will take place at 9:15 a.m. on Friday (May 29).
USC has been seeded into heat two for the second varsity eight competition, where they will face California, Stanford, Yale and Princeton at 9:45 a.m. on Friday (May 29).
For the varsity four competition USC has been placed into a heat with Ohio State, Clemson, Wisconsin and Oregon State which will race at 10:30 a.m. on Friday (May 29).
