SAN DIEGO, Calif. – The No. 8 Stanford men’s rowing team concluded the San Diego Crew Classic on Sunday with three boats racing in the Grand Finals.

"Today had all the components for great results with fair water,  top competition and us coming off an excellent victory over a nationally ranked Northeastern crew on Saturday,” said head coach Craig Amerkhanian. “We fell short today, but we learned a great deal. Our season has just begun and the challenge is at hand. It is time for us to be Stanford and work together for success and optimum performance."

The varsity eight was the first to race in the Men’s Collegiate Invitational. Widely considered the top race of the San Diego Crew Classic, it features the best collegiate eights in the field. The Cardinal won its heat in the Saturday prelims, setting up a chance to race for the title.

While Stanford did not put together a performance equal of Saturday, they did finish third overall with a time of 6:05.26. The two schools that finished ahead of them were No. 2 Cal and No. 10 Northeastern.

The second varsity eight placed sixth in its Grand Final race after posting a time of 6:26.29. The third eight followed shortly after in the Men’s Open Grand Final. They recorded a time of 6:31.06 for fourth place.

Next weekend the Cardinal will be back in action, this time heading to the Northwest. They will be in Seattle to face Washington and Washington State on Saturday and then Oregon State on Sunday.
