LOWELL, Ore. - The 18th-ranked Washington State University women's rowing team swept Oregon State in dual action Saturday morning, retaining the Crawford Plate and Winchell Cup, following it up with a second-place finish in the afternoon session at the Oregon State Classic at Dexter Reservoir, placing behind No. 9 Stanford.

The morning session consisted of the annual dual between Washington State and Oregon State, with San Diego also racing. The results determined the winner of the Crawford Plate, which is awarded to the top varsity eight boat and the Winchell Cup, which goes to the team with the most overall points.

"I think we had a fantastic day in both the morning and afternoon," said head coach Jane LaRiviere. "The team is really coming together. We still have a couple of things to work out, but I am really proud of all of the Cougs from top to bottom."

Washington State's varsity eight (coxswain-Rebecca Burns, Kendall Boliba, Jennifer Hale, Ieva Adomaviciute, Allie Reilly, Nicole Hare, Stephanie Hinkle, Katie Dick, bow - Mickey Aylard) captured the Crawford Plate after finishing the 2,000-meter course with a time of 6:39.00, four seconds ahead of Pac-12 foe Oregon State and San Diego.

Continuing the Cougars' dominant morning was the second varsity eight, (coxswain - Heidi Kim) Carly Johnson, Emily Starkel, Alison Smith, Mollie McCabe, Hannah deVos, Kellen Srb, Elise Jones, bow - Ashlee Bonahoom) which out-stroked the Beavers by over eight seconds with a time of 6:43.1 and ahead of San Diego.

The varsity four (coxswain - Sarah Wu, Gina Head, Samantha Hoeper, Ella Odland, bow - Carter Marks) narrowly edged the opposition as the Cougars claimed a time of 7:21.2, two seconds ahead of the Beavers.

Both of the boats that competed in the second varsity four event beat Oregon State and San Diego. The second varsity four boat (coxswain - Noel Christiansen, bow - Liana DeMaris) finished with a time of 7:41.1 and the third varsity four boat (coxswain - Lauren Leahy, Alyssa Rumann, Alex Waddell, Megan McDonald, bow-Erin Ranney) followed with a time of 7:52.3.

Rounding off the morning session was the novice event, which the Cougars won by six seconds with a time of 7:00.0 (coxswain - Casandra Evans, Sarah Steger, Katrina Tarrant, Chloe Rogers, Regina Snider, Jordan Watson, JoAnne Bates, Savannah Davison, bow - Alex Backsen). The second novice boat (coxswain - Cassandra Vandersloot, Bethany Pupuva, Alex Newcomb, Mallory Yost, Kyra Ilyankoff, Jayme Dailey, Kim Coon, Amy Jacobs, bow - Aley Roberts) finished third with a time of 7:35.3.

The Oregon State Classic took place during the afternoon session and was accompanied by a grueling 10-12 mph headwind. The event featured No. 9 Stanford, No. 18 Washington State, Oregon State, San Diego, and Syracuse.

The Cougars fell to the Cardinal in the varsity eight (same boat as morning session) event with a time of 7:20.1, five seconds behind the Cardinal and three seconds ahead of the Beavers. In the second varsity eight (coxswain - Heidi Kim) Carly Johnson, Emily Starkel, Alison Smith, Mollie McCabe, Hannah deVos, Erin Schuster, Elise Jones, bow - Ashlee Bonahoom) event, the Cougars took second-place to with a time of 7:28.9, nine seconds ahead of the Beavers.

The Cougars' varsity four (coxswain - Noel Christiansen, bow - Liana DeMaris) and third varsity four (same as morning session) boats finished first and second ahead of San Diego with times of 8:29.6 and 8:44.2 , respectively.

Washington State launched two boats in the novice eight final.
