Huskies in Action
Washington rowing will be at home this weekend, competing against Oregon State in a dual regatta on the Montlake Cut. Competition starts at 9 a.m. this Saturday, as teams begin the 2,000-meter course on Lake Washington and finishing at the west end of the Montlake Cut.
A Closer Look: UW Men's Crew
The Husky men are fresh off an impressive weekend at the Windermere Real Estate Rowing Classic last week, where they combined for eight wins in nine races. The varsity and freshman eights both went undefeated in all three of their eight races, while the junior varsity crew fell in the first race, but came back to win its next two. The varsity boat, ranked No. 1 in the nation, swept No. 8 Wisconsin, then-No. 11 Trinity and then-No. 2 Stanford. This week, the Huskies will be facing the 18th-ranked Oregon State varsity eight at 10:34 a.m.
A Closer Look: UW Women's Crew
The Washington women had a strong performance in Northern California last weekend, sweeping Louisville and Central Florida. Despite a trio of losses to Virginia in their second races on Saturday, the Huskies rebounded and capped the weekend with impressive performances against the Golden Knights on Sunday. The women's varsity eight moved up in the rankings into a tie for 10th place (along with Tennessee) and will face the 20th-ranked Beavers this Saturday in the 10:27 a.m. race.
Rowing results and race recaps will be available after Saturday's regatta at: gohuskies.cstv.com.
The Montlake Course
The starting line for the Huskies' home regattas is on Lake Washington, parallel to the Evergreen Point floating bridge. The course runs from east to west through the Montlake Cut to the finish line near the mouth of Portage Bay at the west end of Montlake Cut. A good view of the racecourse is available along either side of the Montlake Cut, or from above on the Montlake Bridge.
Looking Back: 2006 Race Recap
Last year, the Huskies competed against Oregon State in a quad meet that also featured Iowa and Washington State. UW topped the Beavers in eight of the 12 races.
Next Saturday, the Huskies will look to defend its home waters against Cal in what is shaping up to be one of the most competitive duals regattas between the two schools in the last 50 years. The California men's varsity, the defending IRA Champions, return seven of their eight rowers from last season, while the UW varsity crew boasts five World Championships-team members.
