Pacific Coast Rowing Championships

The PCRC schedule just came out and the V8 field includes Stanford, UCF, Sacramento State, and Cal. At first blush this looks like a race between Stanford and UCF. Stanford just beat UCF in the heat at IRAs last year and the Golden Knights definitely have revenge on their mind. Not to mention the fact that when a crew travels across the country it intends to come home victorious. Stanford will have its arms full with UCF and better have one of their best rows if they expect to win. UCF may just be too strong. Sacramento State has had some real success in fours, beating Stanford earlier in the year, so they may put together a fast eight, and Cal would like nothing more than to finally beat the Cardinal. At worst this will be a good two boat race, while they may all take it to the wire.
