We are racing on Saturday with San Diego in mind.

I was very pleased with the team's attitude and commitment to working together. I think they had fun as well.

It was a good day on the water for us. We had some good results and we are happy with the output after a tough meet last weekend. Both Kansas and Cincinnati are good programs and each race was a tough test. This was great competition for us leading into the Crew Classic.

They will all be tough.

It was great to see a strong field and competition for this early spring race. We saw some great performances from all the teams. All of these programs have a lot to look forward to for the next couple of days and the rest of their seasons.

The competition at the Crew Classic is our toughest to date. It'll be a challenge making it into the finals.

The novice eight is great, very fast, learning quickly. This is the big time for them. They've not seen anything like the Crew Classic.
