CORVALLIS, Ore. - The Oregon State Women's Rowing team is set to hit the water for the first time in the month of May, taking on Washington State on Saturday along the Wawawai Landing near Pullman, Wash. Due to potentially inclement weather, racing will begin an hour earlier at 8:15 a.m.

The Beavers will feature five boats against the Cougars, including the Varsity 8, Second Varsity 8, Varsity 4, Novice 8 and 3V8.

The V8 will get things started at 8:15 a.m., followed by the N8 at 8:30 a.m. Races will wrap up after the 3V8 takes to the water at 9:45 a.m.

"This should be a great weekend of racing," Oregon State head coach Emily Ford said. "This is a long-standing dual and WSU is always a formidable opponent. This will be excellent preparation for both teams as we tune up for the Pac-12 championships."

Last time out, the Beavs nabbed two first place finishes in the V8 at the Clemson Invitational, which helped Oregon State reach 19th in the latest poll by the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association, as released on Wednesday.
