COUGS TAKE ON BULLDOGS IN SPOKANE: The WSU women's rowing team will take on Gonzaga, Saturday, October 23, on the Spokane River...the first flight is scheduled to start at 10 a.m. with the final race expected to begin at 12 should conclude around 1 p.m....the Cougs anticipate a strong start to their season, aiming to improve on last year's Pac-10 fifth-place finish as they return from a summer of dedicated training.

COUGAR WOMEN'S ROWING COACHES: Varsity coach Tammy Crawford returns for her tenth season as the head coach of the Washington State women's rowing team and 14th season of collegiate coaching...Jodi Winchell, novice coach, begins her eighth year as a coach with the first-year rowers at WSU...the duo has spent 11 years coaching together. Michele Kistler, a four-year letterwinner with the Cougar rowers, is enjoying her second year with the staff as an assistant coach.

FALL RACING: The fall rowing season reprensents a different perspective of racing than that of the heavier promoted spring "Conference" season. Fall races average over three miles in length, modeling endurance as a key component of team victory. Boats are also staggered at the start, making it difficult to pinpoint the true winner as they reach the finish line. "It's not quite the same excitement as a 2,000 meter, line 'em up straight across from each other and watch them race, event...but we'd love the support if people want to come check it out," said head coach Tammy Crawford.

DIRECTIONS TO HEAD OF SPOKANE: Taking Highway I-90 eastbound, take the Trent exit, turning right on Trent...continue on Trent through the flashing yellow light and the next traffic signal. At the second traffic signal turn left onto Park Road. The road will lead you over a set of railroad tracks and past a park...turn left on the upcoming gravel road. Continue on the gravel road as it cuts across a field and on through the gate one mile to the parking lot, past the weather station.
