WEST SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Sacramento State posted victories against UC Davis in the second varsity eight, novice eight and novice four competitions Saturday morning in women's rowing action at the Port of Sacramento.
The Hornets and Aggies were supposed to compete in the varsity eight for the Jean Runyon Cup, but that was race was scrapped because of a pre-race accident damaging Sacramento State's riggers. The Hornets would have attempted to claim their 13th straight Jean Runyon Cup, a prize both schools' varsity eights have battled for annually since 1997. Sacramento State's third novice eight was also affected in the accident and did not run its scheduled race.
In the second varsity eight competition, Sacramento State's 2000-meter time of 7:01.5 was over 37 seconds faster than UC Davis' time of 7:38.8.
In the novice eight, both Sacramento State's A (7:13.9) and B boat (7:37.5) times were faster than UC Davis' mark of 7:50.3.
In the novice four, the Hornets' time of 8:05.0 was over 39 seconds faster than the Aggies' time of 8:44.6.
Sacramento State returns to the water next week for its final regatta of the season when the team travels to Philadelphia to compete in the Dad Vail Regatta.
