ROWING VICTORIOUS IN FIVE RACES AT THE SEASON-OPENING SACRAMENTO STATE INVITATIONAL

GOLD RIVER, Calif. -- Sacramento State's women's varsity eight, second varsity eight, novice eight, varsity four and second varsity four were all victorious in their respective races Saturday morning at the Sacramento State Rowing Invitational on Lake Natoma. The regatta marked the spring's season opener for Sacramento State.


Along with the Hornets, the Sacramento State Invitational included crews from Humboldt State, Saint Mary's, Cal Lightweights, Santa Clara, Pacific, Sonoma State, UC San Diego and Mills College.

The Hornets competed in seven races during the day, and four of the five first-place boats won their races by open water. Of the two entries that didn't place first, each of those boats finished among the top three, including the novice four (second place) and cox4 (third place). Each of the high finishes came despite a number of Sacramento State rowers doubling up and competing in two different races. In addition, the team's top boat (varsity eight) competed with four underclassmen, comprised of sophomores Antonia Dendrinos and Jessica Smith, and freshmen Nneka Anyanwu and Michelle Evers.

In the varsity eight competition, Sacramento State finished with a 2,000-meter winning time of 6:55.4, followed by Saint Mary's (6:57.6) and Humboldt State (7:03.9) to round out the top three in the five-boat field.

In the second varsity eight, Sacramento State's winning time of 6:59.9 was 22 seconds faster than the next closest competitor. The novice eight saw the Hornets post a winning time of 7:25.8, followed by Humboldt State (7:36.1) and Sonoma State (7:50.1) to round out the top three in a seven-boat field.

The varsity four posted a winning time of 7:43.5, followed by Humboldt State A (7:52.2) and Saint Mary's (8:08.1) to round out the top three in a seven-boat field. In the second varsity four race, the Hornets were 5.8 seconds faster than the next closest boat.

Complete results from each of the Hornets' races as well as lineups can be found below.

Sacramento State returns to action on Saturday, March 17, when the team hosts both San Diego State and UC Davis at 8 a.m.
