Seattle - This week: The Washington men's and women's rowing teams travel across the state for the annual dual regatta with in-state rival Washington State, Sat. April 14. Racing begins at 3 p.m. at Wawawi Landing on the Snake River. Men's and women's varsity, junior varsity and novice eights and fours will compete. WSU's men's team is a club-level program. The event will be televised on a tape-delay basis by FOX Sports Northwest, the first time a WSU rowing event has been televised on the Snake River.

About the Races: The junior varsity and novice women's races should be close as the Cougars staged a competitive race with the Huskies at the San Diego Crew Classic last weekend, placing within seconds of the winning Washington boats. The varsity women's crews both seek to improve upon their performances last weekend as Washington placed second to USC in the grand final of the Whittier Cup, the first loss in that race in nine years, while WSU narrowly missed qualifying for the grand final and placed seventh overall ... the Washington men's first varsity will remain at home to train in Seattle Saturday.
