REDWOOD SHORES, Calif. - UC Davis rowers went up against a pair of the top varsity lightweight eight crews in the country as top-ranked Princeton and No.3 Stanford each posted victories over the Aggies at the Windermere Collegiate Crew Classic at Redwood Shores.

UC Davis rowed strong against Stanford, covering the 2,000-meter course in 7 minutes, 11.72 seconds, just behind the Cardinal, which were timed in 7:08.16. The Aggies led the race by 22-hundredths of a second after the first 500 meters and were only behind by less than a second heading into the final piece.

Against Princeton, the defending national champion, UC Davis trailed by 14 seconds after the first 500 meters and couldn't get closer the rest of the way. Princeton was timed in 3:39.15 at the midway point, finishing in 7:27.43. UC Davis was timed in 8:14.16.

Aggie rowers will compete against another top crew on Sunday when they face No.4 Harvard.
