UCLA Rowing Enters Four Boats into Stanford Invitational
April 10, 2007

Redwood City, Calif. - The No. 8 UCLA women's rowing team will compete in the fifth annual Windermere Stanford Invitational at Redwood Shores (Redwood City, Calif.) on April 14-15. The Bruins will enter boats into the varsity 8, second varsity 8, varsity 4 and novice 8 races against No. 12 Central Florida, No. 13 Virginia and No. 16 Notre Dame.

UCLA swept their varsity eight races last spring, defeating Tennessee, Central Florida, and Clemson. This weekend, the eighth-ranked Bruins will match up with No. 13 Virginia and No. 12 Central Florida on Saturday before clashing with No.16 Notre Dame on Sunday.

UCLA's second varsity eight looks to build on its 2006 success (winning two of three races) when taking on Virginia and Central Florida on Saturday and Notre Dame on Sunday. Similarly, the Bruin varsity four boat will race against Virginia, Central Florida and Notre Dame over the weekend after finishing first in two fo three races last season. UCLA's novice eight crew will compete for the first time at the Stanford Invitational when it faces Central Florida on Friday.
