Husky Rowers Open Fall Season

Oct. 20, 2000

Seattle - The Washington rowing program opens its 2000 fall racing season with an annual trip to Lake Chelan for the Campbell Cup. The men's and women's varsity and junior varsity eight-oared crews will compete against rival Washington State in the fall classic on Lake Chelan. Racing begins at 8 a.m. and the course will cover 1,200 meters.

The Huskies have three additional fall regattas before training begins for the spring season. Also this weekend, women's head coach Jan Harville travels to Boston for the 36th Head of the Charles Regatta, where 76 member 1980 Olympic Rowing Team will meet again to race and reminisce. Twenty years ago the 1980 men's and women's Olympic rowing squads were the most articulate, organized, and outspoken opponents of President Jimmy Carter's call for an Olympic boycott of the `80 Moscow summer games. Harville, who begins her 14th year as head women's coach at UW, was a member of the women's eight in 1980.
