The Washington men's rowing team, ranked the No. 1 team in then nation in this week's initial IRCA Coaches' Poll, has added an event to its 2021 schedule. This Saturday, April 24, the Huskies will travel across the state and face Washington State on the Snake River.
The Huskies will send their third varsity eight, freshman eight and varsity four to face the Cougars, and then the rowers in the two eights will split up and row again in fours.
Here's the full schedule:
