LONG BEACH, Calif. - Competing its first meet of the spring season Saturday morning, the UC San Diego women's crew team earned the majority of top finishes against Chapman, Long Beach State, UC Irvine and UC Santa Barbara.

UCSD came out with speed, taking first place in four out of the five events entered.

"We had an excellent day up in Long Beach this morning," said UCSD head coach Colin Truex. "We won four out of the five races by open water. The novices did really well in their races as well as the JV 8."

UCSD finished first in the second varsity 8, the novice 8 and the novice 4 while rowing against UCSB and UC Irvine. The Tritons also took the top spot in the varsity 4, placing two boats against Chapman and Long Beach State. The first place varsity 4 boat won by over 10 seconds, while the second varsity 8 came in more than 25 seconds ahead of UCSB.

UC Santa Barbara won the varsity 8 by a mere 4.2 seconds over UCSD.

"They ran real close to Santa Barbara and did really well," said Truex, in his first season at the helm of the program. "It was a hard fought race and I'm proud of them. I'm really impressed with the depth of the program."

With the majority of the season ahead of them, the Tritons look toward continued improvement.

"We showed that we're fast on top and fast all the way through, which is something that we want to do over the next few weeks," said Truex. "We have a lot to build on and we're looking forward to next week with San Diego State."

UCSD will race the Aztecs on Saturday, March 9 on Mission Bay.
