LOS ANGELES - The UCLA women's rowing team returns to action at the San Diego Crew Classic this weekend, competing in Mission Bay on Saturday and Sunday.
The Bruins will race two varsity eights, two varsity fours, one open eight and one novice eight at the two-day event. Last season, UCLA's second varsity eight finished first in its races on each day at the San Diego Crew Classic, while the novice eight posted second-place finishes on both mornings.
