Willamette Crew Opens Season at the Northwest Collegiate Rowing Conference Regatta

Vancouver, Wash - Willamette Crew opens its season at the Northwest Collegiate Rowing Conference Regatta on Vancouver Lake in Vancouver, Washington.

The men's varsity 8 race was tight from the start and Willamette held the second place spot for more half of the race. Humboldt, Lewis and Clark, and the University of Oregon began their sprints a bit early and were able to move through Willamette to take 2,3, and 4th respectively, edging the varsity into 5th place.

The women's varsity eight finished second to Puget Sound on the 2000 meter course. The nationally ranked Loggers were six seconds faster than the unranked Bearcats. The Bearcats look to close the gap and move ahead in their next meeting on April 24th at the NCRC Championships.

Willamette Crew hosts The Governor's Cup Regatta on April 10th from 8:00 am - 12:00 pm. There will be a pancake breakfast and views from the Willamette Queen on the Willamette River in Salem, Oregon.
