SAN DIEGO, Calif. - On the first day of the San Diego Crew Classic, the California Golden Bears finished first in all their heats. Cal advances all three boats to the finals tomorrow morning.

In the Copley Cup heats, the California A and B boats finished first and second respectively followed by Temple. The Bears look to win an eighth consecutive Copley Cup tomorrow morning.

The second varsity eight A boat led throughout the race. Opening up a quick four-second lead, the Bears finished 21 seconds ahead of Purdue and 29 seconds ahead of UC Irvine. The second varsity eight B had an equally dominant race finishing 20 seconds ahead of UC Davis and 22 seconds ahead of UC San Diego.

The Cal novice crew was behind Orange Coast College after 500 meters. But the Bears came back to capture a one-second lead after 1,000 meters and blow the rest of the field out of the water over the final 1000 meters. The Bears finished 27 seconds ahead of UC Davis and 28 seconds ahead of USC.
