No. 18 Beavers Top No. 19 Georgetown

Apr 30, 2022

ITHACA, N.Y. – The No. 18 Oregon State men's rowing team out-paced No. 19 Georgetown Saturday morning in Ithaca, N.Y.
The Beavers Varsity 8 clocked in with a time of 5:57.6, beating Georgetown by over three and a half seconds. The Oregon State Varsity 8 also came up just short against No. 15 Penn on Saturday morning and against No. 11 Cornell on Friday.
The weekend's racing marked the final event for the Beavers before they head to Dexter Lake for Pac-12 Championships.
"This was a very fun weekend for the guys and was well worth the trip out," said Oregon State head coach Gabe Winkler. "Each boat was very competitive and watching the Varsity control their race against Georgetown was exciting. It was windy but the Inlet is protected enough to keep the water flat. The guys learned that being aggressive in the piece pays off. These next two weeks before the Pac-12 Championships, on our home course, will be all about the top end speed."
The OSU Varsity 8 for the weekend was comprised of: Ethan deBorja (coxswain), Andrew Balsbaugh, Cal Labonski, Brian Tames, Colin Lindquist, Tristan Gavin, Ryan Ghalayini, Nils Patrick and Ryan Coulter.
The Oregon State 2V8 came up just short against Georgetown on Saturday, finishing just 2.3 seconds behind the Hoyas. The boat also fell to both Cornell and Penn.
The Beaver 3V8 battled throughout the weekend, but was unable to overcome Cornell or Penn over the course of three races.
The Oregon State men's rowing team was the highest raising athletics program in the University's annual Dam Proud Day, bringing in over $50,000 in donations on Wednesday.
"Thanks to everyone who gave to a very successful Dam Proud Day!" Winker said. "Without the help from the alumni and the friends of the team, a trip like this would not be possible."
Pac-12 Championships will take place May 15 at Dexter Lake.
