UW Caps Weekend With Four More Wins In Bay Area

Apr 10, 2022

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – The No. 2-ranked Washington men's rowing team wrapped up its weekend in the Bay Area with four more victories, giving the Huskies 12 wins in 12 races over the two days.
Sunday, the Huskies won varsity eight and second varsity eight races vs. Boston University, as well as a third varsity eight race vs. Wisconsin, at the Pac-12 Invitational at Redwood Shores. At the Ky Ebright Invitational, the UW's fourth varsity eight won its race vs. second varsity eight crews from the University of San Diego and UC San Diego.
On Saturday, the top two UW boats each won two races – one each vs. Syracuse and Northeastern – while the 3V8+ and 4V8+ each won two races in Oakland.
Sunday at Redwood Shores, Washington crews got out to strong starts in all three of their races and led each the entire 2,000 meters.
"The weekend proved to be a very important weekend for development for our team as a whole," said UW head coach Michael Callahan. "Each of the four boats were able to race three times. Lining up 12 times at the starting line in invaluable for a post-COVID year. Travel and race experiences are a guiding principle for the team this year. It was really important to for our coxswains and rowers to execute all aspects of racing. We learned a lot about ourselves and how to gain speed over a weekend of racing. Taking a systematic approach is important for us, and we delivered that this weekend from students, support staff and coaches. I'm super proud of everyone."
The varsity eight, including co-captains Simon van Dorp and Steve Rosts in the seven and four seats, respectively, finished its race in 5:38.46, with nearly a 16-second advantage over BU (5:54.26).
The second varsity eight had a closer race with the Terriers, but held the lead throughout the 2,000 meters. The Huskies won the race in 5:44.95, about seven-and-a-half seconds in front of Boston University (5:52.33).
The Huskies' third varsity eight, which had raced only in Oakland on Saturday, traveled across the Bay to Redwood Shores to face Wisconsin's 3V8+ on Sunday. The Husky crew dominated the race, taking an open-water lead in the early going, and won it with a time of 5:53.17. Wisconsin's time was 6:04.40.
Earlier in the morning on the Oakland Estuary, Washington's fourth varsity eight won its race on the second day of the Ky Ebright Invitational, beating crews from the University of San Diego and UC San Diego. Washington finished in 6:18.07, followed by the UCSD 2V8+ (6:22.76) and the USD crew (6:30.10).
Next up for the UW men is the annual UW-Cal Dual Regatta, which will take place at Redwood Shores on Saturday, April 23.
