UW Eights Settle for Petite Final Berths at NCAA Regatta

May 28, 2005

RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif. - Washington's varsity and junior varsity eight crews came up short in their races Saturday and will compete in the petite finals at the NCAA Women's Rowing Championships on Lake Natoma.

The three-day NCAA regatta concludes Sunday with the championship races. The Huskies have one crew rowing for a national title, the varsity four that had Saturday off after winning Friday's heat to automatically qualify for the grand final. Washington, which won the silver medal in 2004, will row in lane one Sunday alongside defending champion Virginia. The rest of the field includes Brown, California, USC and Wisconsin.

Washington's 13th-ranked varsity eight finished fifth in its semifinal. Only the top three in each race received berths into the grand finals.

In the junior varsity eight repechage, the Huskies started fast and rowed with the lead boats before dropping to third place. The top two repechage finishers advanced to the grand final field.


(Following are Saturday's results and Sunday's lane assignments from the NCAA Women's Rowing Championships. A more detailed recap of Saturday's races, including quotes, will be available on this page later this afternoon.)
