SAN DIEGO - The University of California San Diego men's rowing team earned two top-three finishes in front of a vibrant crowd on the final day of this weekend's 45th San Diego Crew Classic at Mission Bay.

Sunday was highlighted by the Tritons 2V (JV) crew's second-place finish in the Collegiate 2V Sharp Memorial Cup Petite Final, while the Varsity crew took third in the Men's Varsity American Specialty Health Cup Petite Final.

"The depth of our team proved to be really good as usual," said UC San Diego head coach Zach Johnson. "Our varsity crew performed well, just not to the standard we're accustomed to.

"(The Crew Classic) is one of the world's premiere regattas and it's an honor to be part of it every year."

The Tritons' 2V crew placed second in the Collegiate 2V Sharp Memorial Cup Petite Final, one spot behind the University of British Columbia. UC San Diego crossed the finish line in six-minutes, 37.37-seconds, while UBC finished in 6:34.20.

The Tritons finished third in Saturday's opening heat with a time of 6:25.93 to advance to Sunday's Petite Final. UCSD's 2V crew is comprised of Kelsey Hirota, Kenneth Padden, Anthony Morrell, Victor De Cos, Alexei Sebald, Greg Coffman, Grayson Hanson, Garen Doyle and Jason Germain.

The UC San Diego Varsity crew earned a third-place finish in the Men's Varsity American Specialty Health Cup Petite Final, finishing in 6:38.96. The Tritons finished behind Purdue (6:32.32) and North Carolina (6:34.56), as the Varsity crew is made up of Lily Ouyang, Hank Wong, Sean Reynolds, Sean Callaghan, Keith Mielke, Gibb Anella, Tazio Capozzola, Steven Bolton and Gabriel Lane.

The Tritons' Varsity crew qualified for the Petite Final by placing fourth in Saturday's qualifying heat with a time of 6:32.42.

UC San Diego's 3V crew placed fourth in the Men's Collegiate 3V Grand Final, finishing with a time of 6:49.31. The Tritons' 3V crew was edged by less than a second by third-place UC Santa Barbara (6:49.05) and is comprised of Madelyn Brown, Bryan Brennan, Nathan Bayardo, William Lyons, Kevin Schlitz, Elijah Beamer-Robinson, Nick Baltar, Adrian Dinescu and William Stock.

In addition, UC San Diego's V4 crew of Ouyang, Wong, Reynolds, Callaghan, Mielke, Anella, Capozzola, Bolton and Lane earned an eighth-place finish in the Men's Open Grand Final with a time of 6:56.50.
