Local Rowing Update – UCSB men’s and women’s crews performed strongly yet again in Newport Harbor against upcoming WIRA and ACRA competitors.  Despite rowing against an outgoing tide and a slight headwind, the men’s two novice eights both finished in third at the Newport Invitational.  The UCSB women raced UC Irvine, Long Beach State, and Chapman University in their final tune-up before the WIRA championships and pulled out three victories in the varsity eight, novice eight, and second novice eight races and three second place finishes in the varsity four, novice four, and novice lightweight four races.  Keep up the hard work Gauchos!
