Oregon State Beats Santa Clara on Day Two at the Stanford Invite

Apr 25, 2021

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. - The No. 14 Oregon State men's rowing team finished the Stanford Invite with a win over Santa Clara, Sunday morning.
"This was a physically and mentally demanding weekend," said head coach Gabe Winkler. "We raced three of the top teams in the country and to get a win is something to build off of."

The Beavers and the Broncos opened the second day of competition with the first race. OSU, coxed by Ethan deBorja, took the race in over 12 seconds. The varsity boat of Brian Tames, Cal Labonski, Tristan Gavin, Jacoby Wilson, Andrew Balsbaugh, Colin Lindquist, Nils Patrick, and Ryan Coulter, finished in 5:55.74.
The second varsity race was close but Santa Clara took the win. The OSU JV8 boat finished just over a second behind the Broncos.
The varsity squad's win comes after they fell in both races, against No. 11 Stanford and No. 2 California, on day one of the competition. 
Oregon State will return to competition on May 16 for the Pac-12 Championships. 

"We have three weeks to train for the Pac-12 Championships," added head coach Gabe Winkler. "The guys are hungry for more."
