The Seattle Times: Sports: Huskies varsity eight finishes behind Harvard at nationals

Huskies Collect Two Golds and a Silver Medal at IRA Regatta :: JV eight and varsity four win national titles, varsity eight places second

row2k Coverage: 2004 IRA Regatta

Note:  The men will be off-loading the shells Tuesday 6/8 at 4:00 p.m. - Bob invites all friends, parents and alums to come down and visit with the guys during that time.

From Bob:  "The guys did a heckuva job today.  It wasn't exactly how we had it planned out, but I am not disappointed at all.  The JV's and the four had great races, really laid it down.  The varsity guys gave it everything they had, but Harvard is a faster crew.  They showed that today.  But in a scenario like this where you have only one goal - to win - I'm watching that race at the end thinking I hope somebody doesn't come back and pick us off.  It shows the character of our guys to not let that happen.  I am really proud of this whole team."

11:10 a.m. pdt: Harvard pulls away from the pack to win the IRA Varsity Eight event by open water;  Washington places second, California third.

10:20 a.m. pdt:  With a strong move at 1000 meters, the JV8 moved out in front for good and completed an undefeated season with a 3/4 length win over Harvard for the National Championship.

8:15 a.m. pdt:  Down 2 seats to GWU, the V4+ put on a solid mid-race move to win the gold by almost a length.  More as it comes available.

8:00 a.m. pdt:  Course conditions are ugly.  A strong headwind is going to make the times today significantly longer today than on Thursday or Friday.

Other results:  Varsity Pair finishes second in the Petite Final, Freshmen Eight finish second in the 3rd level final.

From Sean Mulligan, women's assistant coach and coach of the V4+: "This whole event has provided a good experience for this team.  This is a young group of athletes and they needed to know what it is like to race and compete at this level..."

"The varsity four had a great race - they really showed up for the final, and saved their best row of the year for the end.  I am really proud of them."

UW Women's Varsity Collects Silver Medal at NCAA Regatta :: Varsity eight wins petite final, Huskies are fifth in team standings

Update 12:20:  Our calculations (NCAA Points) have Washington taking home fifth place in the team standings behind Brown (gold in the V8 and JV8, bronze in the V4), Yale, Michigan and Cal.  That for one of the youngest teams (4 freshmen in the JV boat, 2 freshmen in the Varsity) out there bodes very well for the Huskies in years to come.  Congratulations Huskies for an impressive team performance!

Update 12:00:  A gritty performance by the V8 to win the Petite Final secures 18 more points for the Huskies and puts them ahead of Virginia and Harvard for overall team points. 

Update 11:30:  The JV8 has finished sixth in their Grand Final - the V4 has finished second and will take home NCAA silver - the team is effectively out of the medals now for the team trophy;  Yale, Cal and Brown will now duke it out, with Brown owning the inside track after an impressive win in the JV event and a third place finish in the four.  More as it comes in -

Update 9:30:  The Varsity will race in the Petite Final at 11:45 a.m. - JAMCO - 2004 NCAA Women's Rowing Championships Race Report # 308.  The odds may be stacked against this team but they are not out of the team medals.  Strong performances in the four and JV8 can put them in a position to sneak in to the top three - keep an eye here - NCAA Points.

The JV8 will race in their Grand Final at 11:15 - JAMCO - 2004 NCAA Women's Rowing Championships Race Report # 307

5/30 - Check in at 10:45 a.m. and watch the V4 race in their final at JAMCO - 2004 NCAA Women's Rowing Championships Race Report V4 Grand Final!

11:00 - The V8 came within a fraction of third place in a photo finish at the end of their semi-final.  Here's the race - JAMCO - 2004 NCAA Women's Rowing Championships Race Report # 208.

5/29 9:55 - The V4 just completed a comeback win in their repechage to advance to tomorrow's final - here's the race by split from Jamco - JAMCO - 2004 NCAA Women's Rowing Championships Race Report # 204.

Here are the V8 semi-final match-ups for tomorrow:  Heat 1 - USC, Notre Dame, Yale, Virginia, Michigan, Ohio State;  Heat 2 - Harvard, Cal, Washington, Princeton, Brown, Tennessee.  We're trying to minimize the commentary here but suffice it to say Heat 2 will be a barn burner.  Watch the races tomorrow at JAMCO;  specifically Heat 2 of the varsity event scheduled for 10:45 a.m. here ---> JAMCO - 2004 NCAA Women's Rowing Championships Race Report # 208.  The V4 will race in the repechage at 9:45 and you can watch that race live here ---> JAMCO - 2004 NCAA Women's Rowing Championships Race Report # 204.  Note - the JV8 advanced to Sunday's final and will not race on Saturday.

5/28 - All Husky boats advanced today, including a youthful JV squad that went wire to wire to win their heat, and solid showings by both the V8 and V4, finishing second in their heats.   Given the overall results today - some expected, some not - the team competition looks wide open come Sunday.
