COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Washington State University women's rowing team faced No. 4 Michigan and No. 5 Michigan State in two sessions of duals at Griggs Reservoir, winning two of its eight races.

WSU's second varsity eight claimed the team's two victories Saturday. In the morning session it finished 2.68 seconds in front of Michigan State, with a time of 6:43.27. In the afternoon the Cougars finished nearly eight seconds in front of Michigan, with a time of 6:51.94.

The No. 12 Cougar varsity eight improved as they day progressed. It dropped its race against Michigan State by approximately ten seconds, finishing with a time of 6:50.99. Then in the afternoon WSU came within five seconds of Michigan, but fell short with a time of 6:44.56.

"We are learning a lot," said Washington State head coach Jane LaRiviere. "The second varsity eight had a phenomenal day, and the varsity eight raced much better in the afternoon. The varsity four and novices also raced well."

The WSU novice eight lost a close race, finishing 1.23 seconds behind Michigan State with a time of 7:03.42.

The regatta continues tomorrow as the Cougar crews will race Ohio State in the final races of the weekend.
