Men's Crew Caps Successful Fall Season at Head of the Lake
Nov. 14, 2005
Seattle, WA.-- Stanford Men's Crew competed at the Head of the Lake regatta on Sunday. Starting from the fifth position, the Varsity finished second, 18 seconds behind first place Washington. The UW crew began training in August for an international trip to compete in New Zealand. After 8 weeks of training, the Cardinal showed tremendous potential in negotiating traffic and obstacles on the racecourse.
Head Coach and Director of Rowing Craig Amerkhanian noted: 'We have an enormous amount of work to do before our Spring racing season but this regatta reveals we have the potential to reach our team goals.'
It has been an outstanding 8 weeks of training for the team. With gold medal finishes at the Head of the American and a silver medal finish at the Head of the Lake, the Cardinal is poised to do well in the Spring 2006 season.
