UW Crews Win 7 of 9 Events at WSU Regatta
April 16, 2005
PULLMAN, Wash. - Washington crews won seven of the nine races contested Saturdayafternoon, including the featured women's varsity clash during the annual dual regatta with Washington State at Wawawai Landing.
The top UW women's crew, ranked 11th nationally, defeated the No. 17 Cougars by about six seats. The Huskies covered the 2,000-meter course in 6-minutes, 30.14-seconds followed by WSU in 6:32.8.
Washington swept all three men's races without the services of its top two crews. The Huskies third varsity boat won the varsity eight competition that was shortened by 500 meters due to high winds and bad conditions on the Snake River. UW clocked a time of 6:11.12 with the Cougars just over one second back in 6:12.18.
The only other event shortened by the poor course conditions was the men's varsity four race. The Huskies completed the abbreviated 1,700-meter distance in 5:55.92 followed closely by the Cougars in 5:56.70.
Washington was a convincing victor in the combined junior varsity/freshman eight event, posting a winning margin of nearly 23 seconds with a time of 6:12.75. WSU placed second in 6:35.12.
The Huskies swept all three novice women's events led by a 43-second triumph in the four-oared race. The UW novice four finished in 8:15.39 followed by WSU in 8:58.99. Another decisive victory was turned in by the novice eights as the Huskies posted a near 10-second win. UW crossed the finish line in 6:58.62 and the Cougars in 7:08.39.
Washington also won the second novice eight race, posting a time of 7:14.11 followed by WSU in 7:29.46.
Washington State's only wins came in the women's junior varsity eight and varsity four events. The Cougars' junior varsity had a first-place time of 6:41.03, nearly one length ahead of the 6:46.43 of Washington.
WSU claimed the top-two places in the varsity four women's competition. The Cougars top two crews finished in 7:31.44 and 7:40.73 while the Huskies placed third in 7:42.14.
The top two Husky men's eights did not row this week, instead preparing for next week's highly anticipated dual regatta with California. Washington hosts the Golden Bears, Saturday, April 23 at 10 a.m. on the Montlake Cut. The Husky men rose one spot to No. 3 in this week's national rankings and received four first-place votes. The California men are ranked No. 2.
Next week's action also features the third-ranked Cal women against the Huskies.
