INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - The No. 6 UCLA women's rowing team earned a ninth-place finish at NCAA Championships, which concluded at Eagle Creek Park on Sunday morning.

UCLA registered its second-best finish at NCAA Championships in school history, after having finished eighth overall at the 2012 NCAA Championships. The Bruins finished this year's competition with the same point total (82) as 10th-place Stanford, but earned the higher championship finish as the varsity eight finish is used as the tiebreaker.

The Bruins' varsity eight crew finished first in the Grand Final race, posting a time of 6:26.618. UCLA finished ahead of Harvard, Michigan, Stanford, Yale and Brown, respectively.

Sunday's competition started for UCLA with the varsity four C/D semifinal races, postponed from inclement weather on Saturday. UCLA's varsity four finished first in its semifinal heat with a time of 7:35.478. Later in the day, the Bruins' V4+ crew posted a first-place finish in the C final (places 13-18).

UCLA's second varsity eight finished fifth in the Grand Final, clocking in at 6:36.777. Virginia won the Petite Final race, followed by Stanford, Washington and Harvard, respectively. UCLA and Notre Dame finished fifth and sixth, respectively.

The Bruins concluded their 2013 campaign having advanced to the NCAA Championships for the third time in four seasons. UCLA has logged consecutive top-10 finishes at the national event for the first time in program history under 12th-year head coach Amy Fuller Kearney.
