Varsity Eight: Coming off a fourth-place finish in the Jessop-Whittier Cup at the San Diego Crew Classic and a victory over Stanford earlier this month, the Cal varsity has an entirely different look in 2001. Losing nine letterwinners to graduation, third-year head coach Dave O'Neill depends on the skills of a young and talented collection of women during the Bears Spring 2001 campaign. Cal is expected to race the following varsity lineup:

Cox	Michelle ManteganiStroke	Khobi Brooklyn7	Megan Cooke6	Anne Beaulaurier5	Katie Waller4	Martha Helgeland3	Ariana Canova2	Hilarie MartinBow	Erin Sanford

Competition Quick Look: The OSU varsity eight finished fourth in the Petite Final at the San Diego Crew Classic, April 8. On March 31, the Beavers were defeated by Washington in Seattle. Before racing Cal this Sunday, Oregon State takes on Stanford and San Diego State in two dual races on Saturday.

Stanford Dual Recap: The Cal women's varsity eight defeated Stanford by a sizeable margin in dual racing on the Redwood Shores Lagoon, April 14. The women laid claim to their fifth consecutive Big Row decision in the varsity event. The Bears also recorded victories in the women's JV eight and novice four, but came up short in the novice eight and varsity four events.
