LOS ANGELES - The No. 13-ranked UCLA women's rowing team returns to the water this weekend, competing in the 2008 Pac-10 Challenege in Redwood Shores, Calif. After having cruised to early-season victories against Loyola Marymount and San Diego State, the Bruins continue their spring season on March 29-30 against No. 2 Virginia, No. 5 Ohio State, No. 9 California and No. 14 Notre Dame.

Two weeks ago, the Bruins defeated San Diego State in three of four races at a dual meet at Ballona Creek (Marina del Rey, Calif.). Both of UCLA's varsity eight boats claimed victory, as did the varsity four crew.

UCLA swept Loyola Marymount in all four events in the season-opening regatta on Saturday, March 8.
