RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif. - All three Washington entries successfully advanced through first-day heats Friday, including the varsity four crew that won its race to earn an automatic berth into Sunday's grand final at the NCAA Women's Rowing Championships on Lake Natoma.

The championships continue Saturday morning with semifinal and repechage races before concluding with Sunday's finals. The Huskies' 13th-ranked varsity eight crew finished third in its heat and will compete in Saturday's semifinals. The UW junior varsity eight placed fifth in heat racing and will row a repechage.

The Huskies won the second of two heats in the varsity four event and will join the other heat winner, Virginia, in the six-boat grand final. The other four spots will be determined during repechage racing Saturday. The Cavaliers are the defending national champion in the fours and Washington claimed the silver medal in 2004.
