ROWING PICKS UP THREE WINS AT THE SACRAMENTO STATE INVITATIONAL

GOLD RIVER, Calif. – The Hornets earned wins in the varsity eight, second varsity eight and varsity four competitions Saturday morning at the Sacramento State Invitational on Lake Natoma.

Today's regatta consisted of four 2,000 meter races, which included the varsity eight, second varsity eight, varsity four and second varsity four. A total of four teams were at the regatta, including the Hornets, Cal, UC San Diego and Santa Clara. Cal, which is ranked seventh in the nation in the CRCA top 20 poll, competed some of its team in Seattle today, and others at Lake Natoma. Conditions for each of the four races included eight mile per hour crosswinds.

The Hornets' win in the varsity eight saw the team's top boat post a first-place time of 6:46.5, easily finishing ahead of UC San Diego (6:59.3) in the two-boat field.

Sacramento State's second varsity eight's time of 6:56.8 was ahead of Cal (7:00.8) and UC San Diego (7:13.2). The Hornets' varsity four was also victorious with a 2,000 meter winning time of 7:46.6, ahead of Cal, Santa Clara and UC San Diego, respectively, in the four-boat field.

Only two boats competed in the second varsity four with Cal posting a time of 7:54.6, followed by Sacramento State (8:07.0). Four of the five Hornets in the second varsity four also competed earlier in the day in an eights race, including Zoie Kabir, Helena Young, Kelsey Rogers and Nola Rowe.

Today marked the fourth and final regular season race as the Hornets will now get ready to compete at the American Athletic Conference Championship on May 16 in Oak Ridge, Tenn. Two of the team's regular season races were on home water as the Hornets opened the season by hosting Saint Mary's on April 10.
