The Hornets placed second, third and eighth, respectively, in the collegiate novice eight, second in the novice four, and sixth and seventh in the open four.
In the collegiate novice eight, Stanford rowed to a winning time of 20:38, followed by Sacramento State's A boat (21:20) and B boats (21:52) to round out the top three spots. The Hornet C boat's eighth place time was 24:17.
