Head of the American results
GOLD RIVER, Calif. --- Highlighted by the Hornets' novice eight placing third in its event, the Sacramento State women's rowing squad concluded its fall season of racing on Saturday at the Head of the American on Lake Natoma. Today marked the last of two fall regattas as the Hornets competed at the Head of the Port two weeks ago.
Saturday's racing took place on a three-mile course with a time trial start format. Sacramento State competed one entry in the novice eight (5-boat field), three entries in the collegiate eight (21-boat field), and six pairs (27-boat field).
The Hornets' entry in the novice eight race completed the three-mile course with a time of 21:39.8, trailing only a pair of boats from Cal. Sacramento State's third place time was nearly three minutes faster than fourth place Mills which finished at 24:37.4.
In the Collegiate Eight, Sacramento State's A boat (17:55.3), B boat (18:16.6) and C boat (19:20.4) finished 10th, 14th and 16th, respectively in the 21-boat field. Of the nine boats that finished ahead of the Hornets' A entry, eight were crews from Pac-12 Conference schools.
The highest placing Hornet pair finished 9th out of 27 boats as the combination of Sara Vysotsky and Estel Boix Noguer finished with a time of 20:39.8, followed closely by Masa Kupresanin and Mikaela Smyth with a time of 20:44.3.
