VANCOUVER, Wash. - The Washington State women's varsity eight crew, ranked 12th nationally, defeated #14 Oregon State by a mere two-tenths of a second Saturday at a dual regatta on Vancouver Lake at Vancouver, Wash.

The Cougars' second varsity eight (JV8), varsity four, and novice eight boats also defeated the Beavers on the 2000 meters course.

OSU captured wins in the novice four and second novice eight races.

In the varsity eight race, WSU pulled out to a strong lead at the halfway point but Oregon State came back to make it a race.

"We were steady but we still need to work on maintaining a lead," Cougar coach Tammy Crawford said after the varsity eight race. "The win today should place us in the fourth seed for the varsity eight at the Pac-10 Championships."

Expected seed order for the May 16 conference championships at Lake Natoma near Sacramento, Calif., are: 1. Washington, 2. California, 3. USC, 4. WSU, 5. Oregon State, 6. Stanford.
