Men's Rowing Falls to Top-Ranked Washington
April 10, 2010
SEATTLE, Wash. – The Oregon State men’s rowing team took on No. 1 ranked Washington in four different races at The Montlake Cut as the No. 18 ranked Beavers lost all four of the races against the Huskies, but challenged UW throughout the meet.
“We knew going into this race that Washington was fast and across the board they showed why they are ranked number one,” head coach Steve Todd said. “We have to learn from this, make adjustments and prepare ourselves for next weekend. Our goal is to improve each week.”
In the varsity 8+ race, Washington finished the course in a time of 5:40.57 with Oregon State coming in second, 20 seconds behind the Huskies.
In the only non-dual race of the day, Oregon State finished second in the second freshmen 8+, defeating Washington State by six seconds as Washington captured the race in a time of 6:12.55.
Oregon State will return to action next weekend at the Stanford Invite in Redwood City, Calif. Orange Coast College, Wisconsin, Stanford and Cal will be going against the Beavers at the regatta.
