Clemson Invitational Results

CLEMSON, S.C. - The No. 5 UCLA women's rowing team finished in first place in six of its eight races on Saturday and posted two second-place finishes at the Clemson Invitational on Lake Hartwell in Clemson, S.C.

In the morning session on Saturday, UCLA's four boats - two eights and two fours - each raced to first-place finishes against a strong field that featured No. 13 Michigan, No. 14 Clemson, Indiana, Texas and Rhode Island.

"Clemson has done a wonderful job hosting the largest Division I rowing invitational that I can remember," UCLA head coach Amy Fuller Kearney said. "The organization and level of competition at this event is truly impressive. Equally impressive has been the way this Bruin team has risen to every challenge and taken advantage of every opportunity to hone their racing skills. It is always fun to see such hard-working, dedicate athletes reap the benefit of their efforts."

The Bruins' varsity eight posted a time of 6:31.60, finishing 2.8 seconds ahead of Michigan in the morning's first heat. UCLA's second varsity eight finished its morning heat in 6:41.50, crossing the finish line 2.8 seconds ahead of second-place Clemson. The varsity four clocked a time of 7:24.60, while the second varsity four finished its opening race in 7:36.50, more than nine seconds ahead of Michigan (7:44.80).

Nearly six hours later, the Bruins returned to the water for the day's late afternoon session. UCLA finished first in the varsity four and second varsity eight races. The Bruins' varsity eight and second varsity four crews finished second in their afternoon races. All four boats competed against No. 3 Virginia, No. 13 Michigan, No. 19 Cornell, Oregon State, Duke and Oklahoma.

In the afternoon session, UCLA's second varsity four posted a time of 7:23.90, a second-place finish behind Virginia (7:12.60). The Bruins' varsity four logged a first-place finish with a time of 7:09.40. The second varsity eight raced to a first-place finish, clocking in with a time of 6:24.70, just 1.1 seconds ahead of Cornell. UCLA's varsity eight crossed the finish line in 6:17.70, just 4.9 seconds behind first-place Virginia.

Sunday's racing schedule has been altered, with each heat opening 45 minutes prior to the previously-scheduled start times. UCLA's varsity eight will race at 8:14 a.m., with the second varsity eight at 8:35 a.m., the varsity four at 8:56 a.m. and the second varsity four at 9:31 a.m. (all times Eastern).

"Tomorrow will bring one more chance to race against a strong six-boat field, including No. 4-ranked Ohio State," Fuller Kearney said. "We are looking forward to it."
