Women's Crews Begin Competition at Lake Natoma

May 13, 2006

Rancho Cordova, Calif. - Washington State's women's rowing team started competition on Lake Natoma with a fourth place finish in the open pair event, Saturday.

Senior Jessica Bills and sophomore Annie Rauchenstein rowed in the event, which is not technically part of the Pac-10 races and does not count toward the points total that decides the conference champion.

WSU's men's club also raced in the Pacific Coast Rowing Championships. The team's varsity four staved off a pressing California in the last 250 meters to win the event with a time of 6:30.9, less than two seconds ahead of the Bears (6:32.1).

Action from Lake Natoma continues Sunday, at 8 a.m. for the Pac-10 Championships. For complete results and times from the event, visit www.jamcotimes.com.
