GOLD RIVER, Calif. - Washington State University women's rowing placed fifth in the second semifinal of the second varsity eight in its lone race Saturday at the 2010 NCAA Rowing Championships at the Sacramento State Aquatic Center on Lake Natoma.

The Cougars will move on to compete in the Petite Final of the second varsity eight Sunday at 10:55 a.m., which will determine places seventh through 12th. The top three teams from each of the two heats move on to the Grand Final Sunday.

Washington State's second varsity eight (coxswain Lexi Ryman, stroke Natasha Ostopovich, Crystal Martin, Christina Kinck, Liz England, Erica Lewis, Corinna Sharick, Danya Levesque and Erika Jorgensen) started in lane five of the second heat, competing against Stanford, Princeton, Michigan, Wisconsin and Ohio State. The Cougars fell behind early, but pulled even with the Buckeyes halfway through the race. With 500 meters to go, WSU took a half-a-boat lead over OSU to finish fifth in the heat in a time of 6:41.19.

"They had a good race, it was gutsy," WSU head coach Jane LaRiviere said. "I think they're looking forward to 24 hours rest and coming back strong in the Petite Final tomorrow."

The Cardinal won the heat with a time of 6:28.94. Stanford, along with Princeton and Michigan will join Brown, Virginia and California in the Grand Final. The Cougars will compete against Washington, Michigan State, Yale, Wisconsin and Ohio State in the Petite Final of the second varsity eight Sunday.

WSU's varsity eight and varsity four will compete again Sunday in the Third Final of each respective event. The Cougar varsity four kicks off the day at 9:50 a.m., followed by the second varsity eight at 10:55 a.m. and the varsity eight at 11:30 a.m.

"Tomorrow is the last time for our seniors so we want to race well." LaRiviere said.
