April 21, 2013

Clemson Invitational Results

CLEMSON, S.C. - The No. 5 UCLA women's rowing team registered a pair of second-place finishes on the second and final day of action on Lake Hartwell in the Clemson Invitational.

The Bruins' varsity eight boats each recorded second-place finishes on Lake Hartwell, while both of UCLA's varsity fours did not complete official races due to heavy winds picking up in the late morning. UCLA's varsity four crews rowed on a shortened course with floating starts.

UCLA's varsity eight boats each recorded second-place finishes on Lake Hartwell. Both crews finished behind first-place and No. 4-ranked Ohio State. The varsity eight posted a time of 6:45.80, trailing the Buckeyes by 5.7 seconds. UCLA's second varsity eight clocked in at 7:06.00, nearly 11 seconds behind Ohio State (6:55.10).

In both varsity eight races, UCLA finished ahead of Minnesota, Oregon State, Texas and Central Florida, respectively.

The Bruins' varsity four crew finished five seconds ahead of second-place Ohio State in an unofficial race (times were not reported for either varsity four race due to the shortened course).

The Bruins finished their weekend having earned six first-place finishes and two second-place finishes in eight races on Saturday (morning and afternoon sessions).

UCLA returns to action against crosstown rival USC on Saturday, May 4, in Marina del Rey, Calif. Race times for that morning will be posted online the week of the crosstown showdown.
