NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. - The Toreros traveled to
Both the Varsity Eight and the JV Eight competed in the Varsity Eights event, as there were no other JV entries. USD's Varsity Eight took control of the field within the first 50 meters and expanded their lead with every stroke throughout the race. The Toreros made it look easy as they passed through the 1000 meter mark with several lengths of open water on the rest of the field. Unfortunately, there was a problem with the timing, so were no accurate finish times to report, but the USD Varsity Eight was approximately 200 meters ahead of second-place Long Beach as they passed through the finish line.
The Berg Cup was presented by its namesake, Mr. Craig Berg, who commented, when presenting the trophy to USD, that they looked like they were ahead "by train lengths!" The Toreros will hold on to the cup for 2006, the third year in a row.
