FALL SEASON BEGINS AS ROWING COMPETES AT THE HEAD OF THE AMERICAN
GOLD RIVER, Calif. -- The Sacramento State women's rowing squad competed in a pair of races on Saturday, highlighted by a sixth place finish in the collegiate novice eight, at the Head of the American on Lake Natoma.
Saturday marked the first of two fall regattas as the Hornets return to the water in two weeks at the Head of the Lagoon in Foster City on Sunday, Nov. 10.
Saturday's racing took place over a three-mile course with a time trial start format. Sacramento State competed three boats in the collegiate eight (29-boat field) and two boats in the collegiate novice eight (18-boat field).
In the collegiate eight, which is a varsity eight race, Sacramento State's A boat raced to a 12th-place time of 18:05.9, the B boat was 20th at 19:11.4 and the C boat finished 22nd at 19:33.7. The top three finishers in the race were Washington A (16:51.5), USC A (16:53.4) and UCLA A (17:05.5).
In the collegiate novice eight, Sacramento State's A boat was sixth (ahead of 12 other entries) with a time of 20:18.5. The Hornets B and C boats finished ninth and 18th, respectively. The top three finishers in the race were Stanford (18:02.0), Cal A (18:21.3) and Cal B (18:24.3).
After the Head of the Lagoon in two weeks, the Hornets do not compete again until they scrimmage Cal and Minnesota on March 1, and open the spring season on March 15 at the Sacramento State Invitational.
