PULLMAN, Wash. - Washington State University women's rowing will return to the NCAA Championships, making its sixth overall and second-straight team appearance, the NCAA announced Tuesday afternoon.

For the second-straight year, the NCAA Championships are hosted by Washington State and will be held at the Sacramento State Aquatic Center on Lake Natoma near Sacramento, Calif. The three days of competition kick off Friday, May 27 and go through Sunday, May 29. The Cougars will be competing at Lake Natoma for the second time this season, having competed there for the Pacific-10 Championships May 15, finishing fifth.

Four other Pac-10 teams will join the Cougars at the NCAA Championships; conference-champion California, Stanford, Washington and USC. A total of 16 Division I teams were selected as the Pac-10 teams will be joined by Brown, Clemson, Dartmouth, Harvard, Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Princeton, Virginia, Wisconsin and Yale.

The Cougars have reached the NCAA Championships as a team five times and once as a varsity eight boat. This year marks just the second time WSU has reached the NCAAs as a team in back-to-back years, also accomplishing the feat in 2003 and 2004. Its best finish came in 2006 as WSU placed fourth, led by a fourth-place finish from the varsity eight. WSU placed 13th last year at the championships, eighth in 2008, ninth in 2004 and 12th in 2003. The varsity eight placed 13th in 2002.
