"I thought our three 8s had a good start to the weekend," Santa Clara head coach Jay Farwell said. "We are racing against elite crews from the top rowing universities in the country. To have this many student-athletes competing at this level is a real testament to the direction of our rowing program."
Tomorrow Santa Clara has the semifinal races that will determine whether the Broncos enter the C or D final on Sunday. The C final will determine the 13-18 finishers while the D final determines 19-24. To achieve their goal and make the C final, it will require the Broncos to finish in the top-three of the semifinal heat in the morning.
