UW Women Win Second Varsity Eight Race in Cal Dual

April 22, 2006

BELMONT, Calif. - California won the featured varsity races Saturday while Washington was victorious in the women's second varsity eight event at Redwood Shores during the 96th dual regatta between the West Coast rowing powers.

The Golden Bears won six of the seven races contested, including the men's and women's varsity eight competitions.

Defending national champion California's second-ranked crew won the battle of the women's top boats, registering its third straight win in the dual regatta. The Huskies, who posted 13 consecutive victories between 1991-2003, still have a 22-8 lead in the all-time dual-race series.

The Golden Bears won the main men's race by open water, stopping a strange streak in which the visiting team won the varsity eight race in each of the last five seasons.

Washington's second women's crew prevented a Cal sweep with an open-water triumph. That win stopped the Bear's two-race series winning streak in women's second varsity action.

California was also victorious in the men's second varsity eight and freshman eight races along with the women's novice eight and varsity four competitions.

The Washington crews return to action Saturday, May 6 when they host the 20th-annual Windermere Cup Regatta that coincides with the Opening Day festivities for boating season.

(Following are the unofficial results from today's regatta. Official times, along with a more detailed race recap with quotes, will be available on this same page later this afternoon.)
