Cal Women's Crew in NCAA National Championships

The Golden Bears Varsity 8 boat is going for a national title defense, team as a whole is going for a 4th title in school history. - Cal Women's Crew Twitter

All Golden Bears boats are in the Grand Finals today (and I'm NOT just repeating what I wrote for men's crew). Can the Bears win a 4th NCAA Team title in school history?

NCAA Women's Crew Championships

Where: Eagle Creek Park in Indianapolis, IN

When: 7:10, 7:30, 7:50 AM (see more details below)

How to watch: Online Stream (NCAA.com)

Unlike the Men, the NCAA National Title is determined by the combination of the race results for the Varsity 8, 2nd Varsity 8, and the Varsity 4 (part of the reasons why the Men's Crew is run separately from the NCAA to uphold its tradition). The Golden Bears are actually the defending champs in the main Varsity 8 race from last year. They are again in decent shape with all boats in the Grand Finals (although the same can be said for other top contenders like defending champs Ohio State, Brown, and Stanfurd).

Golden Bears have won 3 NCAA titles in women's crew - they came in 1980, 2005, and 2006.
