IRA Regatta Quotes

UW Freshman Eight and Open Four Crews Win National Championships :: Huskies place third in team standings at IRA regatta

Thank you Sean Mulligan (rowing shots) and Dan Lepse (team shots) for the photos -

Mike Callahan, Freshmen Coach - "We knew the field was strong.  It's been strong all year for us facing a Cal boat loaded with talent.  To come out here and finish the season like this is amazing.  These kids definitely deserve this.  Every day they came down to the boathouse committed to this, even after some tough outcomes earlier in the year.  It was that work ethic - that spirit - that got them to where they are right now..."


"The guys said it was easier today than any time before.  The whole focus in the last five weeks has been to stay in our boat, to focus on rowing as a unit.  As opposed to earlier races, where we shot out at a 47 and settled to a 37, today we started at 42 with length, settled to a 35-36, and just lengthened.  Wire to wire.  I told them last fall - I put it up on the white board in November - that if they were going to win out here, they would have to row a 5:39 with a tailwind.  They rowed a 5:38.8.  These are special kids - they really deserve this."

"One thing I want to say about the alums.  The momentum we are picking up from their efforts, the athletes that we are bringing here, could not have happened without their support.  It is a big deal to myself and to these kids to see the commitment on the part of the alums to keep our program at the top level..."


6/3 11:25 a.m. pdt - Cal wins the V8 trophy - Cal, Princeton, Harvard, Brown and Washington all bunched at 500 meters;  at 1,000 it was Princeton and Cal;  at 1,500 meters Cal was up by about three seats, with Washington and Harvard dropping back;  at the finish it was Cal blowing past Princeton in the sprint for an eight seat win, Brown sneaking through for the bronze about a third of a length back with Harvard, Washington, and Yale right there within a half length (all crews finished within 5 seconds of each other). 


6/3 10:15 a.m. pdt - Harvard wins 2V8 event, Washington 4th - was gaining on the field towards the end but falls a half length short of Wisco for the bronze...



6/3 9:50 a.m. pdt - Freshmen win National Championship - blew out to a lead at 500 meters and never relinquished - won by about a half length over Cal... more as it comes in...

6/3 8:05 a.m. pdt - Open 4+ wins National Championship - defeats Cal by a length

Dan Shapiro - first year coach of the 4+ - "They really did it.  The race went according to plan.  We learned off of our heat race where we went out too hot.  Today after about 300 meters, we were able to get into our race pace.  They were a little down to the field at that point, but midway through the 2nd 500 established themselves.  Cal put a move on at 1,000 but the guys just stayed steady and really began to move away after that..."



"The guys in this boat are a great story.  Peter Carlson (frosh) and Dustin Kraus (junior) rowed together in high school down in Sacramento, so it was a reunion of sorts for them.  Alan (Oriard) and Ricky (Bargreen) are excellent northwest athletes who never rowed before they came to Washington.   Our cox, Patrick (Kavanagh) is a freshman out of the Greenlake program.  The guys really came together as a team to commit and win this race..."
