UW Men Open Competitive Season With Trip To Oregon State
A week after the traditional start of the spring racing season – the 120th Class Day Regatta – the Washington men's rowing team starts the competitive season in earnest this Saturday as the Huskies travel to face Oregon State in a dual regatta.
The Huskies and Beavers will square off in four races: first, second and third varsity eights, and varsity four.
Here is a schedule of the morning's races, which will take place at Dexter Lake, in Lowell, Ore., outside of Eugene. A number of UW rowers will compete in both an eight and a four:
8:30 a.m. PT – Varsity Eight
8:50 a.m. PT – Second Varsity Eight
9:30 a.m. PT – Third Varsity Eight
9:50 a.m. PT – Varsity Four (three UW entries)
Results and coverage will be provided on Twitter at the @UW_Rowing account. Be sure to check there for all of the latest information.
Washington will be competing in an intercollegiate, sprint-race event for the first time since the Huskies closed out the 2019 season at the IRA Championship Regatta. Since then, they've only raced in head races in the fall of 2019, in a virtual race vs. the Dutch Under-23s in Jan. of 2020, and in last Saturday's Class Day, which is an intrasquad event.
Next Up: Following their trip to Dexter Lake, the Huskies will have two weeks to prepare for another dual against a Pac-12 foe as the Huskies travel to Redwood Shores to face Stanford, April 17. Two weeks after that, the Huskies take on California at the Windermere Cup on Montake Cut.
