HOW: A Conference-record six Pac-10 squads earned bids to the 2010 NCAA Rowing Championships at Lake Natoma, Calif. The No.3 California Golden Bears enter the event riding a first place finish at the Pac-10 Championships. The Bears beat 2009 NCAA Champion Stanford by less than a point to win the varsity eight race and take the Pac-10 title by less than a point. Cal finished in second at last year's NCAA Championships and have placed in the top three the past two years. No. 4-ranked Stanford is looking to defend its 2009 NCAA crown and is making its fifth NCAA appearance. No. 10 USC finished fourth at the Pac-10 Championships as a team and will be making its fourth NCAA appearance. For the first time in school history, the Trojans are making back-to-back team appearances at the Championship. No. 14 Washington State is making its fifth NCAA appearance with the highest finish for the Cougars coming in 2006 when they placed fourth overall. No. 7 Washington continues its streak of being the only Pac-10 team and one of three in the nation to appear in every NCAA Championship since it began in 1997.  The Huskies are coming off a third-place showing at the Pac-10 Championships. No. 13 UCLA is set to compete in its first NCAA Championship in school history after a fifth place finish at the Pac-10 Championships. Since the inception of the NCAA Rowing Championships in 1997, only five teams have won the NCAA title, three coming from the Pac-10. Washington won the title in 1997, 1998 and 2001. California took first in 2005 and 2006 and Stanford won in 2009.
