Women's Rowing Announces Virtual Guide Release

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Still three weeks away from the first race of the 2012 season, Santa Clara women's rowing is proud to present its virtual media guide on www.SantaClaraBroncos.com. The guide features fresh video, coach and rower bios, information on Santa Clara Athletics, the university and the Bay Area.

Santa Clara's first race will be Mar. 31-Apr. 1 at the San Diego Crew Classic in San Diego, Calif.

With such a young team, Bronco head coach John Wojtkiewicz has set specific goals that the team as a whole is working towards achieving together. Last season they were timed at 7:10 in the 2K for the Varsity 8 and finished sixth at the WCC Championships, both marks they hope to beat this year.

Even if they don't reach their goals they know this season is great experience for the young team and Santa Clara rowing has a bright future.

"Our ambitions for the spring are to improve over last year in regards to time and placement at the WCC Championships," said Wojtkiewicz. "Regardless of what we achieve this year, next year will be even better with full classes of sophomores and juniors and an excellent freshmen class already in the pipeline."

In addition to rowing at the San Diego Crew Classic the Broncos schedule includes LMU on Apr. 21 and the WIRA Championships in Lake Natoma, Calif. on Apr. 28 and 29. The season wraps-up with the WCC Championships, also held at Lake Natoma, on May 12 and 13. Click here for complete schedule.
