Women's Rowing Returns Home from Iowa with Seven Wins

Apr 30, 2022

North Liberty, Iowa - The No. 15 Oregon State women's rowing team came away with seven first place finishes out of eight races contested on Friday at the Coralville Reservoir, hosted by University of Iowa.
 
Due to wind conditions in the Iowa City area, races were moved to a new race course venue and necessitating the change in race format to two sessions of three boats instead of one race with all six crews teams. Oregon State matched up against opponents Minnesota and Wisconsin in the first session of the day and Iowa and Central Florida for the second session.
 
Oregon State started the day with three wins in the V8, 2V8 and V4 and a second place for the 2V4. The Beaver varsity eight defeated Minnesota (6:42.41) and Wisconsin (6:54.8) with a time of 6:36.26. Wisconsin temporarily stopped during the race at the 1250m mark after hitting a buoy impacting the final margin. The Beavers V8 was a length up at that time.

With a 6:52.26 finish, the second varsity eight was able to hold their lead over Wisconsin and Minnesota in a tight finish of less than a second separating the Beavers over the Badgers. The varsity four finished in a time of 7:35.41 in their match up over Wisconsin and Minnesota while the second varsity four raced to a second place finish behind Iowa in a time of 8:00.63.
 
In the second session, the Beaver boats took first in all four events. The varsity eight finished at 6:43.90 while UCF (6:56.31) and Iowa (7:01.67) finished second and third, respectfully. The second varsity eight followed with a 6:56.30 time in front of UCF and Iowa. In the varsity four boat the Beavers posted a time of 7:40.1 and had the largest margin of 15.03 to the second place crew UCF, followed by Iowa. The second varsity four squeaked out their victory of the day by two seconds over Wisconsin (8:08.86) in a time of 8:06.40.
 
This was Oregon State's last competition before the Pac-12 Championships and an important cross conference competition for the Beaver crews to demonstrate their strength as a full squad in all events. NCAA scoring event of the V8, 2V8 and V4 have the most weight in national rankings and NCAA selection which will be announced on Tuesday May 17.
