ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - The UCF rowing team is set to travel to Sacramento, Calif., this weekend to compete in the Lake Natoma Invitational against some of the top rowing squads in the country.

The Knights' varsity eight squad will take on No. 5 Stanford and No. 9 Wisconsin Saturday morning at 10:10 a.m., before going head-to-head with Tennessee (RV) and No. 4 California later that afternoon at 4 p.m. to decide who it will face in Sunday's finale.

"We are really excited for the opportunity to race such high caliber teams," head coach Becky Cramer said. "It is going to be a fast weekend and will really test us, but we are ready for the challenge."

Also competing against the Cardinal and Badgers will be the varsity four team at 9:10 a.m. and the second varsity eight at 9:40 a.m., while the two squads will take on the Lady Volunteers and the Golden Bears at 3 p.m. and 3:30 p.m., respectively.

UCF's novice team will race against California and Stanford in its morning session at 10:30 a.m., and will race at either 9 a.m. or 9:10 a.m. Sunday morning.

Sunday's competition will begin at 8 a.m., with the last race of the day getting underway at 9:40 a.m.
