Rowing opens spring slate at UCLA with Stanford
March 1, 2018
SAN DIEGO - The San Diego State rowing team is set to begin its spring competition this weekend at UCLA, where they will face the Bruins and Stanford University on Saturday, March 3. The regatta is scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. at the UCLA Marina Aquatic Center in Marina del Rey, Calif.
The Aztecs are set to begin with the third varsity eight at 9:45 a.m., followed by the varsity four at 10 a.m., the second varsity eight at 10:15 a.m. and the varsity eight at 10:30 a.m. The 3V8 race is scheduled as a head to head vs. UCLA, but all three teams will compete in each race to follow.
All three teams open their regular season with this weekend's regatta. SDSU has hosted a trio of scrimmages at Mission Bay this February, spending time on the water with Minnesota, a joint scrimmage with Orange Coast College, UC San Diego and University of San Diego, and most recently welcomed Loyola Marymount.
Aztec rowing also enjoyed a successful fall slate, highlighted by two first place finishes in the open eight and open four at the Row for the Cure, in addition to finishing first in the open eight and second in the novice eight at the San Diego Fall Classic.
Spectators are welcome at Saturday's regatta and can park for free at Dock 52 or pay for parking at Fisherman's Village, but there will not be spectator parking available at the boathouse. The entire race will be visible from the bike path alongside Ballona Creek.
Following the trip to Marina del Rey, the Aztecs travel to Gold River, Calif., for the Hornet Invitational on Saturday and Sunday, March 17-18, hosted by Sacramento State.
