No. 19 Cougs Head to Dexter Lake to Row Against Oregon State

Mar 18, 2022

DEXTER, Ore. – The No. 19-ranked Washington State women's rowing team is set to open the 2022 spring season this Sunday, March 20, as the Cougars will head to Dexter Lake to battle Oregon State for the Winchell Cup and the Crawford Plate. The regatta is set to begin at 9 a.m. PT.

WSU will finally kick off its 2022 spring schedule this weekend after the Las Vegas Invitational was canceled on March 5 due to high winds.

Saturday's regatta opens at 9 a.m. PT with the first varsity four and second varsity four race. The second varsity eight will take to the water after that at 9:15 a.m. PT. The first varsity eight gets underway at 9:30 a.m. PT and the third varsity eight and novice eight race concludes the regatta at 10:20 a.m. PT.

The Winchell Cup and Crawford Perpetual Plate will be up for grabs this Saturday. The Winchell Cup has been given annually since 2001 to the overall winner of the dual regatta between WSU and OSU. It is named after Washington State novice rowing coach Jody Winchell. The Crawford Perpetual Plate has been presented to the winner of the WSU/OSU first varsity eight race since 2003 and is named after former Cougar varsity rowing coach Tammy Crawford. Oregon State is currently in possession of both trophies after winning the first varsity eight race and the overall regatta last season.

Washington State checked in at No. 19 in this week's CRCA/Pocock Poll. WSU picked up 53 votes in the first CRCA/Pocock Poll of the regular season.
