SAN DIEGO - The UCLA women's rowing program finished second in three Grand Final races on the second day of the San Diego Crew Classic on Sunday afternoon. The Bruins' varsity four, novice eight and open eight each posted second-place finishes.

UCLA's varsity eight finished second in the Petite Final, crossing the finish line in 6:45.96, just 0.36 seconds behind first-place Oklahoma. The Bruins' varsity eight finished ahead of Iowa, San Diego, Oregon State and Purdue.

The Bruins' second varsity eight finished sixth in the Grand Final, behind USC, Stanford, Washington, Wisconsin and Washington State, respectively. UCLA's second varsity was prompted to stop racing midway through the race in order to clear seaweed from the crew's path. The delay affected UCLA's final race time.

UCLA's varsity four raced to a second-place finish with a time of 7:33.42, less than three seconds behind USC (7:30.90). The Bruins crossed the finish line ahead of Oklahoma, Stanford, Oregon State and Iowa.

The novice eight finished second to Washington, posting a time of 7:13.56. The Huskies finished the novice eight Grand Final in 7:10.50. Washington and UCLA finished ahead of Stanford, Washington State, Oklahoma and Tulsa, respectively.

UCLA's open eight finished second in a six-boat Grand Final. The Bruins finished behind BMA Cornell and ahead of Lincoln Park, San Diego, Santa Clara Alumni and Mission Bay Rowing Association.

The Bruins are back in action at the Virginia Invitational the weekend of April 16-17 in Lake Monticello, Va.
