COUGAR WOMEN'S ROWING COACHES: Varsity coach Tammy Crawford returns for her eighth season as the head coach of the Washington State women's rowing team and 12th season of collegiate coaching...Jodi Winchell, novice coach, begins her sixth year as a coach with the Cougar rowers...Colin Tindall, assistant coach, is in his first year at WSU but third year of coaching...Paula Curry, a four-year letterwinner at WSU, is an undergraduate assistant coach while Drew Osborne is a volunteer coach this season after spending three years with the WSU men's rowing club.

COACH CRAWFORD SAID: "Our goal is to get an NCAA Championships bid and we think have to finish second in the Pac-10, because we know Washington will dominate first place. The NCAA bids are based on a point system. Last year we learned that the varsity eight race is critical because our jayvee eight and varsity four boats were faster than Oregon State, but they received the NCAA bid. This year, OSU has already beaten our varsity eight and California at the San Diego Crew Classic, and Oregon State beat Cal by one second in a dual meet at Redwood Shores last weekend. So WSU, OSU and Cal are all within five seconds of each other. With a victory against OSU this Saturday, it will show the improvement from our earlier race and prepare us for the Pac-10 Championships (May 17)."

LAST WEEK: Washington dominated the windy and choppy water in dual racing against Washington State on Montake Cut in Seattle April 11...the Husky women, ranking first nationally among Division I varsity eight crews, defeated WSU by 22 seconds on the 2,000-meters course, 6:59.2 to 7:21.0...UW took advantage of the home course and rowed additional boats in nearly every race...Washington won the junior varsity eight, both novice eight and the varsity four women's races...the Husky men also defeated WSU's club team.
