LOWELL, Ore. - Hitting the road following last week's San Diego Crew Classic, the UC San Diego women's rowing team competed against the West Region's top squads Saturday at the Covered Bridge Regatta on Dexter Lake.

In the Varsity 8 race, the Tritons rowed to a fifth-place finish in 7:22.00 on the 2,000-meter course. Portland won in 7:02.06, Western Washington was second with a time of 7:02.40, Seattle placed third in 7:07.09 and Humboldt State came in fifth at 7:07.58.

The Tritons' Varsity 4 boat was also fifth of five crews, posting a time of 8:13.17. Humboldt State was victorious in 7:57.42.

UCSD's best finish came in the JV 4 event, where the Tritons placed second with a time of 7:56.29, behind Western Washington's winning time of 7:49.40. UCSD crossed in front of Humbold State, Portland, Lewis, Seattle Pacific and Oregon. The same group won the Varsity 4 Grand Final at last week's San Diego Crew Classic for the second straight year.
