Trinity Men's Rowing Races In Petit Final At San Diego Classic

San Diego, Calif. - The Trinity College men's varsity-eight crew finished sixth in the petit final of the Cal Cup at the San Diego Crew Classic this afternoon on Mission Bay.  Trinity posted a time 6:52.050, while San Diego won the six-boat race at 6:34.507.  The Bantams had finished fourth in yesterday's preliminary heat with a time 6:20.578, one second behind Loyola (Cal.) and a place in the grand final.

"I'm proud of the racing effort.  We had a disastrous trip to the West Coast," said Trinity Head Coach Kevin MacDermott.  "After four flights, 26 hours of travel and an unexpected overnight stay at Chicago Midway Airport, the guys raced their hearts out.  They gave everything they had and will be better for the effort later this season."
