PULLMAN, Wash. - The Washington State women's rowing team remained at No. 16 for the fourth straight week in the Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association (CRCA)/US Rowing National Collegiate Coaches Poll as there was little movement in the final poll released prior to the Pac-10 Championships announced Wednesday.
Washington remained atop the poll, capturing 10 of 15 first place votes. Brown garnered the remaining five first place votes to hold on to second, while Princeton was third. Radcliffe moved out of a tie with California to claim sole possession of fourth. The Golden Bears dropped to fifth. The other three Pac-10 teams remained unchanged from a week ago with USC coming in at No. 12, Oregon State at No. 15 and WSU at No. 16. The Pac-10 continues to be the only school with five teams ranked among the nation's top 16.
The Cougars head to Sacramento, Calif., for the Pac-10 Championships Sunday on Lake Natoma.
