SAN DIEGO – The University of Miami women’s rowing team heads out west this weekend to the San Diego Crew Classic.

The Canes are coming off a bye-week and look to improve their teams across all boats.

After two home regattas on Indian Creek, the Canes will race on Mission Bay in San Diego on Saturday morning.

"Our top crews got a good taste of some of the best early-season racing available when they competed in San Diego last year," Miami head coach Andrew Carter said.  "I think those returning have done a great job communicating the scope of the challenge to our younger rowers and the preparation has definitely been better this year.  Everything I've seen in our training and racing so far this spring says that we're in a better position as a team than we were 12 months ago.  This weekend will be a great opportunity to prove that on a national stage."

Miami is traveling two varsity eight boats with senior Kata Horvath stroking the first Varsity eight. The 2V eight will be stroked by freshman and Florida native, Caroline Escobar.

The first V8 will be competing for the Cal Cup. The first varsity race goes off at 11:40 ET. Miami’s 2V8 is competing for the Jackie Ann Stitt Hungness Trophy going off at 2:00 ET.

The San Diego Crew Classic can be followed on live stream webcast throughout the weekend.
