UCLA rowing team races in NCAA Championship for the first time

The UCLA rowing team is not used to racing so late in the postseason.

Selected for the NCAA Championship for the first time in team history, the No. 13 Bruins will pick up their oars one final time this weekend to compete for a national title at the Sacramento State Aquatic Center.

UCLA will compete with three boats at the championships: the first and second varsity eight and the varsity four. The winner is determined by a weighted system, in which the first varsity eight earns more points for a top finish than the other two boats.
