Stanford Shows Speed at Windermere Collegiate Crew Classic

Host Stanford University's No. 5 men's and 10's women's varsity eights showed their speed on the opening day of racing at the Windermere Collegiate Crew Classic on the Redwood Shores Lagoon, in Redwood City, CA, March 9. The Cardinal men's varsity eight split in Saturday's racing while the women defeated both of their opponents.

Women's Varsity Recap
The morning session of racing opened with the No. 10 Cardinal women snatching a nearly two-length victory from Texas. Also in the morning stanza, No. 5 California easily defeated No. 14 Wisconsin, No. 9 Virginia handled No. 11 Washington by a length, and No. 13 UCLA defeated Clemson.

In the afternoon, Stanford raced Wisconsin bowball to bowball before taking control in the third 500 meters of the 2000 meter race. Washington defeated Texas by a length, California beat Clemson and Virginia topped UCLA by open water.

Men's Varsity Recap
On the men's side of the competition, No. 5 Stanford opened against No. 4 Washington in one of the most anticipated races of the weekend. The crews were about even 500 meters into the race, but the Huskies made their move in the 'middle thousand' taking just over a one-length advantage. The Cardinal could not close on the Huskies by the time the crews reached the finish. No. 2 California defeated No. 13 Oregon State, No. 9 Yale upset No. 8 Dartmouth, and No. 17 Michigan came from nearly one length down to overtake No. 12 Wisconsin in the last 10 strokes of the race.

The racecourse belonged to the West Coast crews in the afternoon. Stanford men's varsity bounced back in the afternoon defeating Dartmouth by just over a length. Cal continued to roll with a convincing win over Yale, while Washington downed Michigan and Oregon State defeated Wisconsin.

Women's Lightweight Varsity Recap
Stanford women's lightweight varsity eight opened things up with a win over San Diego State, Princeton defeated Cal and Wisconsin beat Georgetown. In the afternoon, Stanford continued their winning ways against Georgetown and San Diego State defeated California. Finally, in a battle of top crews from 2004, Wisconsin took nearly a length on Princeton in the second 500 meters and held that advantage over the last half of the race.
