The Pac-12 may be lagging far behind other power conferences when it comes to major sports like football and men’s basketball, but the league continues to thrive in the less-heralded disciplines. Count women’s rowing among those sports the Pac-12 excels in after earning five spots into the NCAA championship.
California, Stanford, USC, Washington and Washington State are part of the 22-team field that will compete May 25-27 in Sarasota, Florida. Washington is the defending national champion and the No. 1 overall seed, earning the top seed in both Eights competitions and in Fours after winning the Pac-12 title over the weekend.
Cal earned the No. 2 seed in II Eights and Fours and No. 3 seed in I Eights while Stanford is the No. 2 seed in I Eights.
