SAN DIEGO, CALIF. - For the second straight year No. 7 Stanford defeats No. 2 California in the Copley Cup grand final, but Cal's Novice 8, JV 8 and Open 8 all won their respective grand finals.

The Novice 8 was never challenged on its way to winning the Derek Guelker Memorial Cup. The Bears cruised to a 12-second win over Orange Coast.

In the Sharp Cabrillo Cup grand final, Cal soundly beat its opponents, holding a five-second lead after only 500 meters and a 21-second lead as the race ended.

In the Copley Cup grand final, the Bears opened up an early .60-second lead on Stanford after just 500 meters. Throughout the next 1000 meters Stanford held in close to Cal, trailing by just .31 seconds at the 1500-meter mark. Over the last 500 meters Stanford passed the Bears, finshing just over one second ahead of Cal. Oregon State was the next closest boat, at 14 seconds behind the Bears.

The Cal open 8 trailed Stanford Rowing Club for the first 1500 meters, but the Bears came back to defeat Stanford by half a second.

The Bears next race No. 8 Wisconsin, Sunday, March 15, in Redwood Shores, Calif.
