RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif. - Sacramento State's women's rowing varsity eight edged UC Davis by 3.1 seconds on Sunday morning at the CSUS Aquatics Center at Lake Natoma, claiming the Jean Runyon Cup for the fifth consecutive year.
The Hornets covered the 2,000-meter course in 7 minutes, 7.3 seconds, crossing the finish line ahead the Aggies, who were timed close behind in 7:10.4. UC Davis was trying to end a string of four straight wins by Sacramento State in the annual dual for the Jean Runyon Cup, but the Hornets were able to hold of the Aggies in a race that was held during heavy rains. The teams started battling for the Jean Runyon Cup in 1997. The Hornets beat the Aggies by 6.1 seconds in 2002.
