CREW TO COMPETE AT TWO EVENTS THIS WEEKEND
The San Diego State women's crew team returns to action this weekend and will be competing at two different events. The varsity eight portion of the squad travels to the Head of the Lake Regatta in Seattle, while the remainder of the team will compete at the Newport Autumn Rowing Festival in Newport, Calif. Both events will be held Sunday. The Aztecs come off a sweep of events at the San Diego Fall Classic Regatta this past Sunday in Mission Bay.
SAN DIEGO FALL CLASSIC RECAP
After capping off last season's San Diego Fall Classic regatta with a first-place finish, the Aztecs followed suit Sunday sweeping all three events in which it competed. The Aztecs placed first in the Varsity Eight event, finishing with a time of 22:31. USD, Orange Coast College, Loyola Marymount and the SDSU B team rounded out the top five. SDSU also took the Novice Eight portion of the competition with a 1-2 sweep. The SDSU B team finished first with a 24:20 finish, being followed by the SDSU A team (25:01). SDSU also took the top spot in the Open Four event with a time of 26:49 ahead of UC San Diego and Long Beach State.
HEAD OF THE LAKE
Only the Aztecs' varsity eight squad will be traveling to Seattle. The event will be held on Lake Washington and will be hosted by the Lake Washington Rowing Club and the University of Washington.
NEWPORT AUTUMN ROWING FESTIVAL
The Aztecs will be competing in three events at the Newport Event. The Open Eight competition gets underway at 8 a.m. SDSU will also compete in the Novice Eight race at 9:30 a.m., followed by the Open Four at 10 a.m. The event will be hosted by the Newport Aquatic Center.
The Aztecs take the next couple of weeks off before competing in the Long Beach Christmas Regatta Dec. 3. That event marks the last regatta of the team's fall schedule. The team's spring campaign gets underway on Feb. 3 at the San Diego Indoor Classic which will be held at El Carmel Point.
