2016 Outlook - "The 2016 spring season for the Aztecs should feature a faster and deeper team. Seventeen of the twenty-three women who competed in the NCAA events at the 2015 American Athletic Conference are back on the team and are posting faster times on the ergometer and better performances in the weight room. Talented transfer Tara Montgomery joins key returners such as senior co-captain Steph Schulman, juniors Christa Carillo and Alyssa Lua, and sophomores Sara Avery, Gina Bourke, Brynn Danvers, Hannah Gasser, and Izzy Paul. They are bolstered by a strong freshman class that includes former Australian junior international Maddie Bernard, multiple Australian state champion Hannah Norris, Youth National Championship competitor Lauren Mitchell from Sarasota Crew, ultra-marathon runner Ema White, and a host of other contenders for the top boats.
"The spring race schedule includes a nice mix of dual meets as well as large regattas. Following the traditional San Diego schools plus OCC scrimmage, the dual meets include LMU, USC, UCLA, Sacramento State, St. Mary’s College, Alabama, and UCSD. The large regattas are the San Diego Crew Classic and the WIRA Championships. The American Athletic Conference regatta will be held on Lake Natoma outside of Sacramento, the first time the AAC has been held in the Western time zone. The Aztecs are building toward improving on last year’s championship results with a goal of getting all crews onto the podium and challenging for the conference championship and the AQ spot in the NCAAs."
