CORVALLIS, Ore. - The Oregon State women's rowing team opens the spring season this Saturday at Dexter Lake in Lowell, Ore., racing against both Gonzaga and the University of Victoria.

The Beavers last raced on Oct. 27 in the Princeton Chase and Portland Fall Classic, competing well and preparing for the spring season. The Oregon State Varsity 8 boat finished in 16th place out of the 52-boat field and was the fastest boat from the west coast in the New Jersey race. In Portland, the Beavers notched a second place finish in each event they rowed in (Junior Varsity 8, Varsity 4+ Final and JV 4+ Final).

Last season, Oregon State was able to sweep the University of Victoria in all three races that the team competed in along Elk Lake, British Columbia. Two weeks later, the Beavers traveled to Spokane, Wash. and took four of five events from Gonzaga.

On Saturday, the teams will be racing on Dexter Lake's 2,000-meter course that begins at the covered bridge on the east side of the lake running down two full buoyed lines northwest towards the OAR boathouse for the finish line.

Racing is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m., and the first Oregon State women’s boat to compete will be the Novice 8 at 9:15 a.m. From there, the Varsity 8, Second Varsity 8, Varsity 4+, Second Varsity 4+ and Open 8 will take to the water.
