Women's Rowing Takes Three Races against Victoria

March 14, 2010

LOWELL, Ore. - The Oregon State's women's rowing varsity 8+, second varsity 8+ and the novice 8+ 'A' all started the fall season off strong with victories against the University of Victoria on Saturday at Dexter Lake.

'It was a very productive day on the water for us,' said head coach Emily Ford. 'As a team, we learned a lot from this first race and I believe all boats are walking away with a greater understanding of where we need to focus our energy over the next several weeks of training and racing.'

In a tight race the OSU 1V8+ crew clenched a close victory, beating Victoria by a 1.63-second margin. The 2V8+ had a more commanding lead throughout the 2,000-meter course, winning by almost 10-seconds.

The Varsity 4+ boats fell behind early on and made a strong push in the last half of the race but still fell short. Finally, the Novice 8+ 'A' boat started off strong and held on to come out on top with Victoria following by 9.77-seconds.

The Beavers will return to action on Saturday, March 20
