Three Pac-10 Men's Rowing Crews Head To IRA Championships

Top-ranked Washington has captured 13 IRA Championships, with the last being in 2009. The program has won the last four Ten Eyck trophies, which is awarded to the team with the most points at the regatta.

All five Husky crews earned medals last year, including gold in the varsity four, second varsity eight and freshman eight. Washington won the varsity eight, second varsity eight and varsity four at the 2011 Pac-10 Championships to claim its second-straight conference title.

Defending IRA National Champion and second-ranked California, runner-up at the Pac-10 Championships, will send all five boats to this year's IRAs. The Bears, who have won 16 IRA Championships, defeated Washington by 0.263 seconds in last year's varsity eight race to claim the title. At the Pac-10 Championships, Cal won the opening race of the day, the freshman eight, and finished second to Washington the remaining three races.

Stanford will enter boats in the varsity eight, varsity four and freshman eight. The Cardinal finished fourth in the varsity four and sixth in the freshman eight at the 2010 IRA Championships. Stanford placed third in the varsity eight at the 2009 regatta. The squad finished third overall at the Pac-10 Championships, earning bronze medals in the varsity and second varsity eight races.
