REDWOOD SHORES, Calif. - Oregon State Women's Rowing had a busy day on the water at the Pac-12 Challenge, topping San Diego in both the Varsity 8 and Second Varsity 8 events on Saturday afternoon.

The Beavers finished second to Virginia in each of their three races, falling in the V8, 2V8, and Varsity 4 to the Cavaliers.

"In our early afternoon races against Virginia, I thought the V8 did a really nice job racing what is a very strong Virginia crew," Oregon State head coach Emily Ford said. "They were successful in balancing aggression and composure. This was a very solid step for this crew." 

Oregon State would respond in its matchup with USD, prevailing in two of the three races on Saturday night. The Beavs V8 boat came in with a time of 6:33.6, finishing just over three seconds ahead of the Toreros crew.

The 2V8 boat also raced well against USD, taking control and claiming first place by four seconds with a time of 6:54.5.

In the final race of the day, Oregon State fell to USD in the V4 with a final time of 8:04.5.

"Both the V8 and the 2V8 did a nice job fighting for the wins against the best USD squad I've seen in 8 years. Overall, this was a great day of racing. All of our boats have made good progress and our V8 is starting to show some legitimate speed," Ford said. 

The Beavers will return to racing on Apr. 5 at the Oregon State Classic, hosted on Dexter Lake in Lowell, Ore.
