MARINA DEL REY, CALIF. — The USC women's rowing team defeated UCLA 3.5-3 in the annual dual on Sunday (May 13). This victory over the Bruins extends USC's overall record competing against UCLA to 19-1. The Trojans were presented with the inaugural Amy Fuller Kearney-Lori Guerro Azbill Trophy for the UCLA-USC City Dual after the regatta. The Amy Fuller Kearney-Lori Guerro Azbill trophy commemorates former USC assistant coach Lori Guerro Azbill and long time UCLA coach Amy Fuller Kearney.
"Today was another great race day," said head coach Josh Adam. "Thank you to UCLA for hosting a great regatta. And it was fun to race for the inaugural Trophy for this dual. Our depth in the 3V8, 1V4, and 2V8 showed how far we've come in a year. The 1V8 race was a tough one from wire to wire. We made some adjustments this past week and we learned some things about how those adjustments came through in racing. We see UCLA again in two weeks at the crew classic along with some other great crews. It's early season racing; but, as ever, the PAC-12 conference is full of speed."
For a list of boatings and final times, see below.
The dual was scored with the following system: the Varsity Eight race was worth three points, the Second Varsity Eight race was worth two points, the Varsity Four was worth one point, and the Third Varsity Eight were worth half a point.
