SAN DIEGO - It was a successful first day at the 41st San Diego Crew Classic Saturday for the UC San Diego women's rowing team as the Tritons advanced four boats to Grand Final races on Mission Bay.

UCSD's Varsity 8, Novice 8 and 4+ crews will all compete in DII/DIII/Club Grand Finals on Sunday.

The Varsity 8 boat earned its pass to the Grand Final by finishing second in Saturday's heat races. The Tritons posted a time of 7:21.9 to finish behind Barry's 7:16.4. The Grand Final will take place at 12:30 p.m. Sunday with Barry, UC Santa Barbara, Central Oklahoma, Wichita State, Orange Coast College, UC Davis and Royal HK joining UCSD in the field.

UCSD's Novice 8 crew had the top time in Saturday's prelim, crossing the finish line in 7:35.1, more than two seconds ahead of second-place finisher Orange Coast College (7:37.6). The Novice 8 Grand Final hits the water at 12:50 p.m. Sunday. The Tritons will be up against OCC, UC Santa Barbara, UC Davis, Long Beach State and UC Irvine.

Rounding out the 8 boats, the Tritons' 2nd Varsity 8 crew will run in Sunday's Petite Final after placing fifth in Saturday's second heat with a time of 7:40.1. Joining UCSD at 9 a.m. will be UC Santa Barbara, Mills, Illinois and Chapman.

UCSD also posted the top time in the Varsity 4+ prelim, coming in at 3:59.2. Central Oklahoma was a distant second in 4:08.7. The Tritons' 2nd Varsity 4+ boat took seventh with a time of 5:02.1.
