Cal Dominates at the Big Row

REDWOOD SHORES, Calif. - The Cal men's and women's varsity crews picked up wins over crews from Stanford in dual racing at Redwood Shores, Calif.

In the Men's varsity event, Cal jumped out to an early lead and was not challenged the rest of the way as the Bears cruised to an easy 11-second win over the Cardinal.

In the women's varsity race, things were much closer. Cal edged out to a 2 second lead over the first 500 meter of the course. The crew maintained their momentum and continued increase the margin finishing seven seconds ahead of Stanford.

In other racing the trend of lopsided victories was seen in the men's JV, men's and women's Frosh/Novice, the Men's second frosh and the novice women's coxed four.

The only win Stanford was able to take home on the day was the women's JV.
