WSU's JV and Novice Boats Advance to Grand Finals at San Diego

March 27, 1999

SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- The Washington State women's junior varsity eight and novice eight crews will row in the Grand Finals at the prestigious San Diego Crew Classic Sunday. The Cougar varsity eight boat will row in the Petit Final (consolation).

The Cougar junior varsity eight boat finished second in the C heat of the Saturday preliminary races for the Cloud 9 Shuttle Media Trophy. Virginia won the C heat in a time of 6 minutes, 51.13 seconds and had the top time of all three heats. WSU's JV clocked in at 6:58.20 on the 2,000 meter course on San Diego's Mission Bay. The top two finishers in each heat advanced to the Grand Final (championship) Sunday at 10:50 a.m.

WSU's novice crew finished second in their Saturday prelim heat in a time of 7:11.19. California won the heat in 7:06.20. The top two finishers in the first three heats and the winner of the fourth heat advanced to the Sunday 10:30 a.m. Grand Final for the Sea World Trophy.

Washington State's varsity eight boat finished fourth in the second of the two-heat prelims for the highly-coveted Jessop-Whittier Cup. WSU's time of 6:46.06 was the sixth fastest of the women's collegiate varsity boats Saturday but the format permits only the top three finishers in each heat to advance to the Grand Final. That championship race will feature top-ranked and defending champions Washington as well as nationally-ranked powers No. 2 Virginia, No. 3 Michigan, No. 7 USC, and No. 8 Wisconsin. Unranked California completes the field. WSU will row in the Sunday 12:30 p.m. Petit Final against No. 10 Ohio State, Oregon State, North Carolina, Yale and Penn.

On Montlake Cut in Seattle, the WSU varsity four finished second to Washington's A and B boats while the Cougar second novice eight boat was also a runner-up to the host Huskies. Only the WSU third novice eight boat was a victor.

WSU hosts Washington in a dual regatta Saturday, April 3, at 2 p.m. at the Cougars' home course at Wawawai Landing on the Snake River.
