UW Crews Sweep all 12 Races at Oregon State
May 8, 2004
VANCOUVER, Wash. - Washington crews won all 12 races Saturday on Lake Vancouver, including the third-ranked men's open-water win over No. 7 Oregon State in the varsity eight event during the annual dual regatta between the Northwest rowing rivals.
Inclement weather created choppy water and forced some delays in the racing schedule, but the featured men's and women's varsity eight events were not impacted by the wind and rain.
The Beavers opened with a lead in the men's varsity eight race, but were unable to sustain their early high stroke rate. Washington gradually overtook OSU and won the race by nearly two boat lengths. The Huskies completed the 2,000-meter course in 5-minutes, 44.06-seconds followed by OSU in 5:49.0.
The eighth-ranked Washington women's varsity eight registered an impressive two boat-length victory. The Huskies clocked a time of 6:40.01 and OSU finished in 6:48.83.
The UW women's junior varsity eight crew underwent major alterations this week and the new lineup was successful in its maiden voyage. Three freshmen were moved into the second boat, helping the Huskies win their first junior varsity competition of the season. Washington rallied from an early deficit to win going away with a time of 7:34.97 to 7:49.86 for OSU.
The Husky men's junior varsity remained undefeated, improving to 5-0 with a 11-second victory over Oregon State which finished fourth behind three UW crews.
Also maintaining an unblemished record was the UW women's novice eight. The Husky newcomers improved to 6-0 despite having four regular rowers promoted to other crews.
The closest race of the day came in the men's freshman eight competition. The Huskies held off OSU to win by two seats with a time of 6:38.5. The Beavers finished in 6:39.3.
Washington crews were also victorious in the women's varsity and novice fours, the second novice eights and the third varsity eights along with the men's second freshman eights and varsity pairs.
The Huskies begin postseason play next weekend. They travel to Rancho Cordova, Calif. for the Pac-10 Rowing Championships, Sunday, May 16 on Lake Natoma.
