UCLA has enjoyed a great 2012 season so far, opening up the season with back-to-back dual meet victories over Loyola Marymount and San Diego before heading to the San Diego Crew Classic, where the second varsity eight took home the the Jackie Ann Stitt Hungness Trophy for winning the second varsity eight grand final. The Bruins continued the momentum from the San Diego Crew Classic by winning all races against Louisville at the SoCal Challenge back on Apr. 14, and defeating crosstown rivals USC in three out of five races on Apr. 28. Earlier this year, the program achieved a No. 3 ranking by the CRCA, the highest ranking the school's history.
