No. 1 Bears Fall To Tough Husky Crew in Seattle

April 26, 2003

SEATTLE, WA - The No. 1 Cal varsity eight lost by 3/4 of a length Saturday to the defending national champions. The race was neck and neck through 1600 meters with neither boat taking more than a two seat advantage. The crews were battling it out and with 400 meters to go, the Huskies surged ahead. Cal could not respond eventually falling to Washington by 2.7 seconds.

'That was a fantastic race with two terrific crews.' said Cal Coach Dave O'Neill. 'Over the last 300 meters Washington showed why they are the defending champs. They were the better crew today. We have a fast crew, and this race shows that we have work to do in the weeks ahead.'

Cal's 2nd varsity eight also fell to the Huskies by 3.0 seconds. The varsity four commanded their race against two Husky crews winning by 7.7 seconds. And finally the Novice eight won their race handily by 9.4 seconds.
