Washington State Women's Rowing


WSU Rowers Sweep Gonzaga for Fawley Cup

March 20, 1999

SPOKANE, Wash. -- The Washington State women's varsity eight, novice eight and varsity four boats won their respective races Saturday to claim the Fawley Cup over Gonzaga University in women's rowing on Long Lake near Spokane.

The Cougars' varsity eight finished the 2,000 meter course in six minutes and 31 seconds followed by the WSU JV 8 at 6:45, Gonzaga's varsity eight in 7:00 and GU's junior varsity boat (time not available).

In the novice eight race, WSU-A won in 6:56 followed by WSU-B in 7:05 and Gonzaga-A in 7:12. The second novice eight race was WSU-C 7:20 and Gonzaga-B 8:18.

Washington State continued the sweep by winning the varsity four race in a time of 7:32, with the WSU-B boat second at 7:38 and Gonzaga last at 8:08.

"I was happy with the results today," Cougar varsity coach Tammy Crawford said. "I hope it is indicative of the speed that we have and will continue to get for the rest of the semester. I told the kids this is the first step in the journey to the national championship."

The next competition for the WSU women rowers is March 27-28, at the San Diego Crew Classic where the varsity eight, junior varsity eight and novice eight will compete against the elite teams of collegiate women's rowing. Selected boats will also be competing at the Husky Invitational March 27 on Montlake Cut in Seattle.
