The Pirates and Gauchos each finished with 25 overall points in the eight-race regatta. But, it was UCSB which won the Varsity 8 race which determined the overall winner and Palmer Cup champion.
The 49ers did more than hold their own against some of the best four-year rowing schools in California, taking the Women’s Varsity 4+ event in the Berg Cup at (7:47.7), trailed by Orange Coast (8:09), Loyola Marymount (8:11.4), and Chapman University (8:52.1).
