March 13, 2003
SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Loyola Marymount University men and women's crew teams will travel to the First Annual West Coast Conference Challenge this weekend, March 15-16, at Redwood Shores in Redwood City, Calif. The two-day event will feature a series of dual matches between the six participating schools.
Joining the Lions at the event are the crews from Gonzaga, Santa Clara (host school), Saint Mary's, San Diego and Sacramento State. All boats will launch from Paradon Point at Redwood Shores beginning at 9 a.m. on both Saturday and Sunday.
The racecourse, which is considered by many to be the premier dual meet course on the West Coast, was designed by Charlie Wynn who was one of the first crew coaches in Santa Clara history. The course itself is very narrow and allows for 2 boats to race at a time. The bridge at the halfway point allows spectators to view the entire race as well as get a sense of the speed as the boats travel through the bridge.
Daily recaps and race results can be found following the completion of the final race at www.row2k.com. The final race on Saturday is scheduled to begin at 4:45 p.m., while Sunday's final race is slated for 12:15 p.m.
