Washington's women's rowing team will send a large contingent of rowers to the Head of the American this Saturday. The Head of the American is held on Lake Natoma, the annual home of the Pac-12 Championships, and frequent site of the men's and women's national championship regattas.
Washington Rowing is rich in tradition. From George Pocock and Hiram Conibear, through innumerable championships and Olympic regattas to the present-day successes, the UW men's and women's programs have plenty of reason to be proud.
