SAN DIEGO - The University of California San Diego women's rowing team sent out five boats and turned in a pair of sixth-place finishes Sunday at the San Diego Fall Classic on Mission Bay.

In the Open 8+ event, UC San Diego's "A" crew crossed the finish line in 17:51.182, good for sixth. The Tritons' "B" boat was 10th in 18:48.593. San Diego State's "A" placed first in 16:41.696 and was followed by the University of San Diego's "A" (17:09.924) and UC Santa Barbara's "A" (17:16.791).

UCSD's "A" crew took sixth in the Open 4+ race, recording a time of 19:54.831, while their "B" was 11th (20:33.027) and their "C" was 15th (21.00.310). The event was dominated by USC, with the Trojans' "B" boat clocking a winning time of 17:52.166. Their "A" crew was second (17:55.934) and their "C" boat took third (18:16.254).

"We raced really well today, the whole team stepped up and really pushed themselves in our final race of the fall," said UC San Diego head coach Colin Truex. "We haven't had a ton of water time this fall, so to see them compete hard with the local teams as well as WIRA (Western Intercollegiate Rowing Association) rivals UC Santa Barbara and Orange Coast College is an encouraging sign for the spring."

UC San Diego breaks from competition until March 3, 2018, when it rows at the UC Cup Challenge in Newport Beach.
