LOS ANGELES - The No. 13-ranked UCLA women's rowing team returns to the water this weekend, competing in the 2008 Pac-10 Challenege in Redwood Shores, Calif. After having cruised to early-season victories against Loyola Marymount and San Diego State, the Bruins continue their spring season on March 29-30 against No. 2 Virginia, No. 5 Ohio State, No. 9 California and No. 14 Notre Dame.
