Head of the American Results
GOLD RIVER, Calif. --- The Sacramento State women's rowing squad opened the fall portion of the schedule on Saturday when the team competed in a pair of races at the Head of the American on Lake Natoma.
Today marked the first of two fall regattas as the Hornets return to the water in two weeks for the Head of the Lagoon in Foster City on Nov. 12.
Saturday's racing took place on a three-mile course with a time trial start format. Sacramento State competed three boats in the collegiate eight (26-boat field), and one boat in the collegiate novice eight (10-boat field).
In the collegiate eight, which is a varsity eight competition, Sacramento State's A boat placed 13th with a time of 18:59.8 in a Pac-12 Conference dominated field. In fact, it was a Pac-12 crew or a Sacramento State crew that took each of the top 18 spots in the race. That included Washington's first-place time of 17:44.1.
The Hornets' B boat finished 16th with a time of 19:42.5, and Sacramento State's C boat placed 18th with a time of 20:31.4. Washington's B boat, Cal (17:50.8) and USC (17:51.1) took up the top three spots in the race.
In the collegiate novice eight, Sacramento State placed fourth out of 10 boats with a time of 23:05.8. Pac-12 Conference crews took up the top three spots in the race, comprised of Cal (18:29.4), USC (20:24.9) and Arizona State (22:26.1).
