Trojans, Cardinal Crew Teams Earn Two Wins Apeice
April 28, 2001
LOS ANGELES - USC and Stanford's women's rowing teams split two races apiece on Saturday morning at a race held at the Port of Los Angeles. The race was the last competition for both crews before heading to the 2001 Pac-10 Championships on May 13 at Lake Natoma in Folsom, Calif.
The Trojans' Varsity and JV Eights highlighted the dual as each finished first against the Cardinal. The JV Eight squad did not hesitate on the 2000-meter course and completed the race in 6:57.2, while Stanford trailed in 7:18.2. USC's fourth-ranked Varsity Eight crew, who led by a boats-length for much of the race, came in 17-seconds ahead of the Cardinal. USC crossed the line in 6:29.0, Stanford in 6:46.0.
The morning began with the Novice Eight race as Stanford captured an early lead and finished nearly 18 seconds ahead of the Trojans' (7:32.6). The Cardinal garnered their second win in the final race. The Varsity Four boat edged the Women of Troy, 7:54.1 to 8:04.5.
With the Pac-10 Championships approaching, USC is still vieing for an NCAA postseason bid for all three Varsity and JV boats. The NCAA Championships take place on May 24-26 in Lake Lanier, Ga.
