"It's going to be really interesting because this will be the first time the Pac-12 Championships have been held at Dexter Lake. We're excited to be breaking in a new course."

Washington State has finished third five times (2001, 2003, 2004, 2008, 2015). Four Cougar boats have garnered Pac-10/12 Champion honors (Second Varsity Eight, 1995, 1996; Novice Eight, 1994, 2001).
