Long Beach State women’s crews took on amazing lineups in this weekend’s Richard Berg Cup hosted by Orange Coast College. Water conditions were calm and flat at the start of the morning, finishing with a light tailwind by the early afternoon. Long Beach State Varsity 8+ placed second at 6:44.0 trailing Loyola Marymount at 6:25.0 and just ahead of Orange Coast College (6:45.0), UC San Diego (6:52.0), Chapman University (7:15.7) and UC Irvine at 7:27.7.
The Novice 8+ finished in the upper half of the pack at third (7:08.2), ahead of UC Irvine (7:19.9), Orange Coast College [B] (7:24.8), UC San Diego [B] (7:42.7), and trailing UC San Diego [A] (7:05.0), and Orange Coast College [A] (6:46.0).
The women’s crews will face off these same crews next week in San Diego, on top of others around the nation.
