Head of the Lake recap

On Sunday, WSU rowers arrived at the annual Head of the Lake in Seattle. With rain, high winds, and cold temperatures forecasted, it was bound to be a rough day on the water, but the Cougs were determined to stick it out.

First to race was the Men’s Varsity 8+. Battling both a fierce field of rivals and the cold weather in Lake Washington, the men competed hard in the early hours of the morning. In the end, the hard work and aggressiveness displayed on the race course payed off. Finishing in 5th place overall, WSU defeated club rivals University of Oregon and Western.

“I think the highlight of the race was the fact that whole time I felt, even in our worst strokes, we were pulling 100%,” Bow seat rower Jose Zuniga said.

Next scheduled to race was the Men’s V4+. Unfortunately, during the two hours between the races, the weather deteriorated, as the winds increased and the rain continued to pour down. Determined to race, the V4+ launched nonetheless.

However, ultimately the regatta was cancelled due to the weather deteriorating throughout the day. The Men’s V4+ returned to the dock as the winds began to pick up across Lake Washington. The Women’s V8+ also was not able to race before the regatta was cancelled.

Despite the disappointing outcome today for many of the events, it was nonetheless exciting to take part in such a large and famous regatta to finish off our fall season. Now it is time for the Cougs to focus on the upcoming winter training, where we will push our fitness and intensity to the next level to prepare for the spring racing season.

It took a special level of commitment for all the parents and fans to stick it out even as we endured the worst of Seattle weather this weekend. It was wonderful having all the support and encouragement we received. We will see you all in the spring!

Head of the Spokane Results

Today, the Cougs raced at the Head of the Spokane Regatta on the Spokane River, facing off against Gonzaga University. WSU entered in total eleven lineups, racing a combination of coxed eights and coxed fours in both men and women’s events. Many athletes raced in multiple events, competing in an exhausting battle of endurance and fitness.

First up, starting off in the chilly hours of the morning was the Men’s Varsity Eight, the Men’s Second Varsity Eight, and the Novice ‘A’ and ‘B’ eights. The 1V8+ finished in third place with respect to time, behind Gonzaga’s first and second varsity boats. Shortly behind was the 2V8+, taking fourth overall fastest time. The Novice boats finished seventh and eighth in the category, falling just short of their Gonzaga counterparts.

Next to race were the women’s 8+ events. The 1V8+ took sixth in the category, defeating both the Gonzaga novice 1V8+ and 2V8+ and crossing the line in under twenty minutes, while the 1N8+ women fell just short of the Gonzaga 2nd Novice.

“This was the first race at Spokane for many of the girls in my boat and for others the first race as a varsity rower,” 1V8+ bow seat Harlow Bronstein said. “I was surprised and actually really proud by how well we rowed, especially because we managed to stay set up pretty well.”

Following this heat, the women raced again, launching the Varsity 4+, and the Second Novice 8+. Unfortunately, the 1V4+ failed to start, but the 2V8+ raced hard and crossed the line in 9th place in their heat.

Lastly, the final heat, consisting of the Men’s 4+ events and the Third Novice 8+, launched at 10:30. The 1V4+ battled hard against Gonzaga’s top 4+, racing head to head until the very end, but coming up just three seconds behind the GU boat, taking a respectable 2nd Place in the heat. The 2V4+, racing with fire in their eyes and determination to prove themselves, took fifth place in the heat.

“Everything came together,” bow seat Alexander Ashton said. “We had a race plan, and we executed.”

Last but not least, the Men’s 3N8+ raced later in the same heat as the fours, crossing the line in eighth place in the flight.

The Cougs came away from racing today with lessons learned and renewed drive and focus. With the first fall regatta behind us, the team will continue to train and prepare for the upcoming Head of the Snake at our home race course, where we will once again face Gonzaga University.

Once again, special thanks to the parents and boosters who provided our athletes with outstanding support!

Triathlon Results

Congratulations to all the athletes who participated in the annual triathlon! This event, spanning the standard Olympic distance, was a fun challenge for all the returning varsity athletes, and a great way for the rowers to prove their fitness. Congrats to third year oarsman Nate Endebrock for taking first place for the second year in a row.

“There’s little we experience in Cougar Crew that prepares you for 2-3 hours of continuous, all out racing,” Endebrock said. “Crossing the finish line and hearing ‘2:24’ was such a relief as I had broken my goal of 2:29:59.”

A special thanks to all those who volunteered their time to once again make this race a reality. With the triathlon now behind us, Cougar Crew will now start preparing for the first regatta of the fall season. Go Cougs!

Cougar Crew Hires New Head Coach

Cougar Crew is pleased to announce that we have chosen Peter Brevick as the new head coach and director.

Mr. Brevick is a WSU alum who began rowing for Cougar Crew in 2002. During his career as an oarsman, he made a name for himself, earning a seat in the top varsity boat his freshman year, and competing at the Intercollegiate Rowing Association (IRA) championships three times during his tenure here. He also served as Commodore, taking a leadership role as a student athlete.

Recently, Peter has coached at the Oklahoma City Boathouse Foundation (OKCBF), where he has led multiple boats to the Grand Finals at Youth Nationals, including this past season, where he led the Boy’s 4+ to a silver medal finish.

“The fact that he has gone on to coach such high-caliber teams and athletes and is returning to Pullman says a lot about our program’s positive direction and the standard we are trying to set…” Assistant Director of Competitive Sports at UREC Matt Shaw said in a press release.

Coach Brevick will be replacing longtime head coach Arthur Ericsson, who began his career at WSU in 2004. Cougar Crew will resume rowing this fall. Special thanks to the search committee for their hard work and dedication in making this decision and we are beyond thankful for all the support we have received from alumni, members, and parents during the selection process. Congratulations, Peter!

WSU Crosses the Finish Line at Nationals

This Sunday, Cougar Crew finished off their sprint season with the final day of racing at the ACRA Championships in Lake Lanier, GA. The day started with some weather delays, including thunder and lightning on the race course. Due to the weather concerns, many third, fourth, and fifth level finals were cancelled, including the Men’s Varsity Pair that WSU competed in. The Men’s Varsity 8+ C/D/E finals were also initially cancelled, but were later reinstated at the end of the day.

When the weather cleared up and racing kicked off, the first boat that rowed for WSU was the Women’s Varsity 2x in the grand finals. The two rowers pulled aggressively as they competed to earn the team our first medals. In the end, the double finished in third place behind Cal Lightweight Rowing and William and Mary. For Senior and Women’s Commodore, bow seat Katie Fowler, this represented her third consecutive year medaling at Nationals, while for stroke seat sophomore Alyx Powell, it was her first ACRA hardware.

“Today, Alyx and I were excited to go out for many reasons,” Fowler said, “however two stand out to me. First off, I wanted to give Alyx another shot at winning a medal at nationals since she had an asthma attack last year during the grand finals. Secondly, this was my last race as a member of Cougar Crew. As someone who went to nationals all 4 years while on the team, rowing a 2k in a double was by far the hardest, but also rewarding.”

The next Cougar boat to race was the Men’s Lightweight Novice 4+. The four lightweight rowers finished in fourth place, one spot short of medaling. Nonetheless, the lightweights had an aggressive, hard-fought race, and finished fourteen seconds behind winner Rhode Island.

The Women’s Novice 4+ was the next boat for WSU to compete. Fighting in a fast B final against crews such as Ohio State and UC Davis, the four battled hard and came in sixth place, within a few seconds of west coast rival Davis’s finish.

The Men’s Novice 4+, who had earned a spot in the A final on Saturday, was faced with a tough competition including leader Michigan. In an impressive battle between the some of the fastest freshman fours in the country, WSU crossed the finish line in seventh place overall, defeating Penn State by two seconds and making a name for WSU in the freshman openweight category.

With all the novice boats done racing, the focus for WSU turned to the two varsity crews remaining, the 1V4+ and the 1V8+. The 4+ kicked off their race in the B final to determine their placement in the top 16 crews. In a nail-biting competition against a wide field including Santa Barbara and Vermont, the crew finished in sixth place, good for 14th overall place in the regatta.

“It was a really fun and competitive race,” bow seat freshman Eric Furrer said. “We went back and forth with the other crews the whole time.”

Last but not least was the Men’s 1V8+, in the D finals. Fellow West Coast rivals Western Washington and the University of Colorado also raced in this event. In the end, the top varsity crew, three of them graduating seniors, raced their final race hard and finished in sixth place.

Cougar Crew had an exciting and eventful trip in Georgia this weekend. The rowers gained valuable experience on the national stage and finished their spring season. All of us would love to extend a special thank you to the parents, fans, and supporters who traveled with us and showed how important this program is to so many of us. See you in the fall!

Cougs Race Through Their First Day at ACRA

The Cougar Men and Women both raced today at the ACRA National Championship regatta. Every boat raced at least once. First up today was the Men’s 1V8+, who competed in a time trial to determine placement in further races. Completing their time trial, the Cougs advanced to the Repechage heats.

Next up was the Women’s 2x. Senior Katie Fowler and Sophomore Alyx Powell raced against four other boats in their heat. Smashing the competition, Fowler and Powell took first by twenty seconds, which earned them a place in the grand final tomorrow.

The Men’s Pair raced next. Juniors Ramiro Gonzalez and Ryan Gehring faced a field that included Virginia, Georgia Tech, and Minnesota. The two fought hard, earning a fifth place finish. The Women’s Novice 4+ followed the pair, racing to determine whether they continued to finals or reps. The Women took seventh place, finishing thirty seconds ahead of the eighth place crew. Next up was the Men’s Novice 4+. Racing with fire in their eyes and finals in their minds, the openweight crew led by stroke seat Trevor Zook took second place.

“It felt really good,” Zook said after the race, “we were understroking the other boats.”

The openweight novice men will continue to the finals tomorrow. The Men’s Lightweight Novice 4+ followed their teammates in a race to determine lanes for the straight finals. Finishing in fifth, the lightweights will race in the finals tomorrow morning.

The Men’s V8+ returned to the race course in the afternoon to race their Repechage heat. Racing against a field of schools from around the country, the crew was also faced with the challenge of rowing against a stiff headwind. During the race, the V8+ had a hard-fought race with a heart-stopping finish, ending up in sixth place just a couple seconds behind the fourth and fifth place crews and less than twenty seconds behind leader Notre Dame.

“I’m glad one of my last races was fought so hard,” said senior 7-seat Matt Elliott. “We gave it our all and it showed when we walked through Illinois at the 750 meter mark.” He added “I’m just happy to be rowing here at Lake Lanier with my team and fellow seniors for one last hurrah.”

The 1V8 will race in the fourth level final tomorrow.

The Men’s Pair raced for the second time today this afternoon in a Repechage race. The two third-year oarsmen finished in seventh place and earned themselves a place in the C final.

In an exciting race, the Women’s Novice 4+ came in fourth in their Rep heat. Finishing only four tenths of a second behind UC Davis, the novice women will race tomorrow in the third finals.

“We would have had them,” stroke Jolee Rocca said, “if we had one more stroke.”

Lastly, the Men’s V4+ fought to earn a spot in the semifinals for tomorrow. Racing against crews such as Penn State and Notre Dame, the men won their place by taking second in their Rep. Just two seconds off of first place Penn State, the 4+ will race tomorrow morning to fight for a place in the grand finals.

Cougar Crew will race again tomorrow. Live video, times and results will be posted at https://www.americancollegiaterowing.com

ACRA 2017

Cougar Crew athletes are preparing to race the National Championships in Gainesville, Georgia this weekend. All crews will race at the 1996 Olympic Race Course on Lake Lanier. This regatta is the culmination of our entire season’s training efforts. In the past, Cougar Crew has performed well at the National Championships and the athletes, coaches, and fans are looking forward to an impressive showing by all our boats.

Countless club crews from around the nation come here every year, and this year is no exception. The Men’s Varsity 8+ alone has 38 entrants. Teams such as UCSB, the University of Delaware, the U.S. Military Academy and Cal Berkeley Lightweight Rowing, among others will compete with WSU this weekend.

Due to the large volume of entrants, the MV8+’s placement in the finals will be determined by a time trial race on Saturday. The top 8 crews with the fastest times will proceed to the semifinals and the other boats will race in the repechage races, where they can still compete for a spot in the finals by finishing in the top two.

The Men’s Novice Lightweight 4+ will race in heats to determine lane placement for finals, but due to only five entries, all boats will directly advance to the finals on Sunday. The Men’s Varsity 4+, Men’s 2-, Women’s 2- and Women’s N4+ will race through heats to qualify for the finals.

Racing will kick off Saturday morning and continue through Sunday. 7 Cougar boats in total will compete, including the Men’s Varsity 8+, 2-, and 4+, the Men’s Novice 4+ and Lightweight 4+, and the Women’s Novice 4+ and Varsity 2x.

Cougars Race Again in California

This weekend, the Cougars competed in the PCRCs, PAC-12 Championships, and the UC Davis Invitational. All three squads raced in a number of different lineups. The Men’s Varsity 8+, 2nd Varsity 8+, and Novice 8+ raced at PAC-12s on Sunday, while the Women’s Novice 4+ and Varsity 4+ competed at PCRCs Saturday and the Men’s Novice 8+, Novice 4+, and Women’s Novice 8+ battled at UC Davis.

The weekend kicked off with an exciting win by the Men’s Novice 4+ on Saturday, where they defeated three Davis crews at their home course. The Novice 8+ also put up an impressive showing, finishing in second in their race behind the top UCD freshmen boat. Later that same day, the Women’s Novice 4+ and Varsity 4+ raced hard at PCRCs, and although they fell short of medaling, both boats marked their first race together this weekend and gained valuable experience on the race course.

On Sunday, the men raced at the PAC-12 Championships. The first boat to race was the 2V8+ in their qualifying heats. The crew found their rhythm and power on the race course, defeating fellow club teams UCLA, Colorado, and Oregon to get first in their heat.

“We had lots of power going into the last 1500.” said Brett Pelan, 4-seat of the 2V8, “Everybody felt in sync, and everything just felt really good.”

Next up in the heats was the 1V8+. The Varsity crew was eager to compete on Sunday and was led by an experienced upper-class stroke seat. Despite their best efforts, the boat fell just short of qualifying for the finals after losing to rival club Colorado by less than a boat length.

The 1N8+ entered directly into the finals and was pitted against the fastest first-year boats in the PAC-12. Ultimately, they finished in sixth place, seven seconds short of rival Colorado and fourteen seconds behind UCLA.

“This weekend we ultimately came up short,” Head Coach Arthur Ericsson said, “but it will make us faster for nationals as we learned a few valuable lessons and will push hard in our last two weeks.”

On Sunday, the Women also raced their Novice 8+, competing against UC Davis, Colorado and Oregon. The boat had an aggressive start but ultimately finished in fourth. This was a helpful experience for the young crew, who will race together at ACRAs in two weeks.

“It was the second tough race of a busy weekend for a number of the crew,” said Women’s coach Dave Kempsell, “ and provided much needed race practice before the team travels to Georgia for ACRAs in 2 weeks.”

Now Cougar Crew will focus on preparing for the ACRA National Championships in Lake Lanier Georgia, on May 27-28, which will be the final race of the season for the Cougars.

PAC-12/PCRC/UC Davis Invitational Preview

For the second time this season, the Cougars will be traveling to Lake Natoma, California, this weekend to compete in the PAC-12 Championships, PCRC Championships, and UC Davis Invitational. The PAC-12 Championships will see the Men’s Varsity 8+, 2nd Men’s Varsity 8+, and Men’s Novice 8+ racing, while the Women will race two 4+ boats at PCRCs. At UC Davis, the Novice Men will field both an 8+ and 4+ and the Women will enter an 8+. A formidable group of crews will be racing this weekend, including the University of Washington, University of California at Berkeley, and fellow club teams University of Oregon, UCLA, and University of Colorado.

For the PAC-12 championships, the WSU boats will race in a heat with the three other club teams to determine placement into the finals. The top two clubs will advance while the bottom two will be eliminated.

Speaking about the PAC-12 events, Novice 8+ coxswain William Hammond said “I’m excited to see improvement from our races at WIRA.”

The women will face a tough field of opponents in the PCRC championships on Saturday, including the Stanford University lightweight team, Sacramento State University, University of San Diego, and University of Colorado.

Finishing the academic semester last week, the Cougars have been able to spend these recent days free of the stress of final exams, with multiple practices on the water and in the indoor training room. This period is critical for determining the success of the teams in the championship season regattas. Also on the line this weekend is the Paul Enquist trophy, which is awarded to the club team that earns the most points at the PAC-12 competition. After winning the trophy last year, Cougar Crew is determined to fight hard to maintain their title.

Windermere Cup Recap

On Saturday, the Men’s Varsity 8+ made a trip across the state to attend the world-renowned Windermere Cup hosted by the University of Washington. Crews around the nation and around the world came to Seattle to compete in 22 different events.

Racing through the famous Montlake Cut, the V8 found themselves up against UW’s top freshman boat, as well as the Huskies’ 4th Varsity 8+, UCSB’s first novice 8+, and Oregon State’s 2V8.

Eager to prove themselves at one of the most prestigious regattas in the world, the Cougars raced hard, finishing in fourth place ahead of Santa Barbara, and crossing the finish line 32 seconds behind the winning UW freshman 8+.

“The men raced well; simply and aggressively,” said Coach Alec Hurley. “Everything we’ve looked to accomplish all season came to bear on the course today. Certainly proud of how we raced today.”

“Being surrounded by hundreds of yachts and thousands of screaming fans, our crew put out our best race of the season,” V8 stroke seat Nate Endebrock said. “Something about the prestigious boathouse, the nice boat, and the great racing environment made something click in us,”

Next weekend, the Cougs will make their second trip this season to Lake Natoma, California, where the Men will be racing in the PAC-12 Championships and the Women will compete in the PCRC Championships. In addition, the Women and Novice men will race UC Davis in a dual meet at their home course.

Following these events the focus for the teams will turn to Nationals, where Cougar Crew will compete with club teams around the nation in Lake Lanier, Georgia on May 27-28.

WIRA recap & Windermere Preview

Cougar Crew’s first trip to California marked the start of the championship campaign. With eight crews across three squads entered at the Western Intercollegiate Rowing Association Championships, the Cougs were ready for the first taste of championship level racing.

Up first on Saturday was the Men’s Varsity 8+. A young lineup guided by both a second-year coxswain and stroke-seat, they placed sixth in their heat, eighteen seconds behind the final qualifying spot for the grand final. Having secured the final position in the petite final, Sunday morning brought an improved race from the crew. The crew crossed the line in fourth, twelve seconds behind the winner (Oregon), good for eleventh place overall.

Second to take the water for the Cougs was the Men’s Novice 8+. Racing hard, the top group of first-year oarsmen just missed qualifying for the grand final, placing third, eight seconds back of second. Earning the top spot in the petite final later on Saturday afternoon, the crew put down an aggressive race to finish second, good for eighth place overall.

The third crew to represent the Cougs was the Women’s Novice 8+. On the heels of a strong showing against the Washington State Varsity Women several weeks earlier, the first-year crew raced aggressively, but fell short of the petite final by just five seconds. Later in the afternoon, the crew continued to show aggression and fight down the course, missing a victory in the third-level final by nine seconds.

The Varsity 4+ raced next and would produce the second top-10 finish for the Cougs on the weekend. Racing in the deepest event at the regatta, there were no second chance races afforded. Under the pressure, the crew delivered a powerful performance in the heats, racing aggressively and placing third, good enough to advance to the semi-finals. Unfortunately, a medical emergency derailed the crew’s momentum later in the day and they failed to advance to the grand final. The crew finished fifth in the semis, good for tenth place overall.

Next up was the final entry for the varsity as the Men’s 2- took to the water. With rough conditions and unresponsive steering, the duo slipped to fifth place and missed the grand final. However, three and a half hours later, the young combination battled back from a pre-race flip to place second in the petite final, earning the Coug’s third top-10 showing of the regatta.

The Men's Novice 4+, with several athletes doubling from the Novice 8+ raced an incredible first heat, placing second. The only crew of the weekend to earn a place in a grand final, the crew fought hard on Sunday morning mustering a competitive sixth place finish.

With Saturday in the books, Sunday brought calmer conditions, renewed spirits, and the sole medal performance of the weekend. Combined with strong showings by the Varsity Men’s 8+ and Men’s Novice 4+, the second women’s crew of the weekend took to the water for a grand final in the Varsity Double (2x). An experienced crew – both with previous medal experience – faced a tough field and finished fifth overall. The final race of the day, the Men’s Novice Lightweight 4+ would allow the Cougs a chance to celebrate. In another straight final, the collection of feisty first-years pulled past three conference rivals Cal-Berkeley, UCLA, and USC to earn a silver medal.

The coaching staff agreed that the prolonged and unexpectedly harsh winter lead to some rougher performances, but are confident the crews are progressing well, and look to make substantial strides as the program concludes the academic year and moves into full-time race preparation over the next three weeks.

Next up, Cougar Crew will be represented by the Men’s Varsity 8+ at the prestigious Windermere Opening Day Regatta in Seattle on Saturday May, 6th. The whole squad will then travel to Sacramento again on May 13-14th for a busy weekend with the Pac-12 Championships (Varsity & Novice Men), PCRCs (Women), and the UC Davis invitational (Women and Novice Men).

Cougar Crew Heads to Sacramento

The Cougars will be traveling down to Lake Natoma, California to take on their first championship regatta of the season. The men and women will be taking on the best club crew teams on the west coast. Throughout this weekend, the team will look to see how they match up against these teams at the Western Intercollegiate Rowing Association (WIRA) Regional Championships.

After missing Grands last year, the V8+ looks to redeem itself with a relatively young boat with three of the eight rowers being sophomores or second year rowers. The V8+ race will be in heat 2 which will start at 8:10 am. The V8+ drew lane six for the heat and will race against UC Santa Barbara, UC San Diego, UC Davis, UCLA, Western Chipotle and CSLB. The top three finishers of each heat will head to the grand finals. Fourth through sixth place will go the petite final and last place will race in the third final.

The usual lightweight four that Cougar Crew races will now be heavyweight four this year. The boat will be coxed by Ridge Peterson and will be guiding an experienced boat. Donavan Labriola will utilize his two-medal experience to push his fellow teammates and is determined to “bring back some more hardware.” The V4+ will be in heat 4 and the race starts at 11:10am. The V4+ will race in lane 5 against Oregon, Chapman, Lewis & Clark, UC Sand Diego, and UC Santa Barbara. The top three finisher of each heat go to the semifinals and the other finishers are eliminated.

The final boat for the men’s side will be the pair with Zeke Nelson at stroke and Alexander Ashton in bow. They will be racing in heat 1 in lane 4 which starts at 12:40pm. The pair will face one of the largest fields out of all of Cougar Crew’s races. The top three finishers of each heat will go on to the grand finals and the rest will go the petite finals.

The novice will be getting their first shot at championship racing and look forward to continuing the success of Cougar Crews novice men at WIRAs. The novice will be sending three boats to race including a full heavyweight eight, heavyweight four, and lightweight four. John Michael Najarian who will be doubling up and leading the Novice 4+ stated “this is where our hard work begins to really show, each guy knows the importance of this race and is ready to pull for each other on every stroke.” The N8+ will race in heat 3 at 10:10am and will be in lane 3. The N4+ will race in heat 1 at 1:20 pm and will be in lane 3. The novice lightweight four will race in a straight final on Sunday at 12:20pm and will be in lane 4.

The women’s club team will be competing at WIRA’s for the first time as an open-weight team. They look to begin with a successful start at WIRAs and bring back some medals to showcase their demanding work and make a stance as one of the best women’s club teams on the west coast. Commodore Katie elaborated on this stating “As of right now, the team is ready to race. The last couple of weeks we have been building up fitness and putting the miles in both on the water and with extra erg practices. Everyone wants to get a good idea of where we stand with the rest of the West coast, especially since we have now become an open-weight team. The novice eight is comprised of a lot of people who have stuck it through since the beginning, as well as a couple of individuals who joined us in the fall. I am excited to see them send out a novice eight which I believe says a lot about how much stronger the team is now that we have expanded. The double also has a lot to offer as well. Alyx and I have a lot of respect for each other and want to be able to continue to show the diversity of the club as a whole by sculling.”

The women’s club novice eight will race in heat 1 and the race will start at 10:20am. The novice 8+ will be in lane 6 and will compete against SDSU, UC San Diego, Orange Coast, Humboldt State, and Sonoma State. The women’s pairs race will race in a straight final on Sunday at 11:50am, they will be in lane 3.

This Saturday, April 22nd, is the last time this season that Cougar Crew expects to race against their biggest rival, Gonzaga. This year’s Fawley Cup will be at Silver Lake near Spokane, and the Cougars look to take the cup on Gonzaga’s home course. This is a side by side 2000 meter duel race. And the trophy cup is awarded to the winner of the premiere Varsity 8 event.

Cougar Crew has been training hard to bring down Gonzaga. Knowing that the Fawley Cup is on the line the team has been focused and understands the importance of this race. Senior Donovan Labriola stated “ this being my last race against Gonzaga I definitely want to go out with a win and a Gonzaga tank.”

The novice had a close three-second win over Gonzaga at the Husky Open three weeks ago, remaining undefeated against them this season. “We expect Gonzaga to be at their best tomorrow,” commented Head Coach Arthur Ericsson. “The novice preparation is on track and we are ready for a barn-burner.”

WSU-UW Duel Results

The Snake River provided rough weather conditions for the races against UW this Saturday morning. Consistent 15-20mph cross-headwinds made the first two events extremely difficult. The Varsity 8 led off the day with whitecap water conditions. Constant gusts and some major side rollers made it difficult for the boat to move and the boat finished after UW with a time of 7:41.4. The 1st Novice 8 raced hard through the rough conditions as well, finishing with a time of 8:04.7.

The wind settled down a little for the Junior Varsity 8, however it turned into a slight crosswind when the race begin. The JV8 stuck with UW for the first 400m however the conditions worsened and they finished second with a time of 7:43.6. The Cougar Crew 2nd Novice 8 finished with a time of 7:51.5 under less extreme conditions.

Next up on April 22nd, the Fawley Cup will mark the last race of the dual season. After this race the team will be going to California and Georgia for three championship regattas.

Cougar Crew Races Hard at Husky Open

WSU Cougar Crew raced at the Husky Open this Saturday, April 1, gaining some valuable experience racing on the Montlake Cut. The Varsity 8 led off Cougar Crew’s racing day going against #3 ranked UW and Western Washington. Washington led the whole way leaving Western Washington and Washington State battling it out. The V8 ultimately lost contact around the 700 meter mark with Western Washington and finished with a time of 6:32.0. The 2nd Varsity 8 went up next and finished with a time of 6:44.0.

The novice men went up against a stacked field as well, facing Washington, Gonzaga, and Western Washington. They went off the line strong, staying in contact with the other three boats for almost 300 meters. They were no match for UW but held a tight lead over the other two boats for a 2nd place finish in 6:33.2, one length over Gonzaga and two lengths ahead of WWU. “The novice 8 had a solid race from start to finish and I’m glad they were being pushed by Gonzaga and Western,” remarked Head Coach Arthur Ericsson. “There’s some timing issues to tighten up and we’ll continue to look at guys from our second boat to see if we can find an even faster lineup combination.” The novice four went up against Washington, Lewis & Clark, and Puget Sound and finished fourth in the varsity event with a time of 7:22.8.

The club women raced a varsity four and were impressed with their results after only putting this boat together recently. The club women raced in a three team field with Washington and Pacific University. They finished in second with a time of 8:17.4.

Cougar Crew Heads Down to Seattle to Face Rival UW

This weekend the Cougars will head down to Seattle to race in the Husky Open. The men’s Varsity will be competing with two full eights. Varsity will be launching approximately at 8:00am and face rivals UW as well as Puget Sound, Lewis & Clark, and Western Washington. The JV will launch 15 minutes later and face off against Washington, Gonzaga, and Western Washington.

The men’s varsity is looking forward to having a good race. Six seat of the varsity eight Sam Callan said that “with the new training implemented by coach we have some solid varsity eight practice time to work on connection and finishes, we are confident we can apply this training to race day this Saturday.”

The novice will be sending down a full eight that will be entered as third varsity boat and a novice four will be entered into the varsity four event. Coach Arthur made a statement about this saying “the novice 8 is racing in the 3rd varsity 8 event against three strong programs. I feel like we've done everything we can do to be prepared for this race, but also know that we'll take away learning experiences as well. The novice 4 is entered in the only fours event offered, the varsity 4. The crew have just as much strength and conditioning as the guys in the 8 but are further behind in their technical development. It would be exciting if they can challenge any of the varsity crews entered.”

The novice look to continue their dominance against rival Gonzaga and have solid showing against UW. The lineup has changed since fall however Jose Zuniga, a new addition to the top novice boat is confident they can produce the same results, “the guys have really been pushing each other in the erg room and on the water which has made us faster and more competitive as a group, we are ready to show we are still the same novice boat that won in the fall.” The novice will be launching at 10:07am in the 3V field and the novice four will launch at 10:17am in the V4 field.

The women’s club team will be heading down as well and will be racing a four. The boat will have great leadership with senior Commodore Katie Fowler in three seat. She had some encouraging words for her teammates, “Alyx and I have been on the team and even though Lanee and Becca are both considered novice, they have prior rowing experience with clubs on the westside. This weekend we are looking to get and race worries and jitters out of the way. We are hoping to see as well where our fitness stands so moving forward over the next couple of weeks leading to WIRA, we know what we have to work on. We are excited to be having Sid Cox us because she knows this course well and also knows how to motivate us so we will be pulling all the way through the race to the finish line.

Cougs Face Off Against Gonzaga

The Cougars put in a strong showing this year at the annual erg duel, but ultimately lost to Gonzaga. The erg dual consisted of eight rowers in each heat who would race against each other in their own group. The winners were the team with the best average of the 2000 meter and 1500 meter pieces.

Highlights of the erg dual included sophomore Devon McCormack, who finished second overall in the 2k and placed in the top five in the 1.5k. Devon said “he was proud of his improvement and proud of his other teammates who stepped up and had PR (personal best) times.”

The novice showed great signs of future success on the water with novice John Michael Najarian and Chris Petershagen finishing in the top 25 overall of both race pieces. Coach Arthur had high praise for his novice saying “The novice bought into the entire challenge. Not only did they lay down their best 2k, but they came back and did it all again on the 1.5k, dropping more than 1.0 second off their average split. This stands out more than anything, willing to do battle two times in a row shows great desire and maturity."

The men will meet the Gonzaga Bulldogs one last time this season at Fawley Cup on April 22nd.

Cougs Travel to Spokane for the Annual Erg Dual

This Saturday, February 25th is the first spring race for WSU Cougar Crew. The team is traveling to Gonzaga for the annual erg duel between the two teams. All rowers will compete in a 2000m race on the ergs, followed by a 1500m several hours later. This weekend marks the third of four races with Gonzaga this year. The dual begins at 9am with the first of three heats. Spectators are invited and encouraged to attend. They can enter through the ticket office at the McCarthey Athletic Center and follow the signs to the Harry A. Green Indoor Rowing Facility.

For almost 3 months the men’s team have been indoors and on the ergs getting ready for spring racing. Vice Commodore Ryan Gehring said “with Fawley Cup coming up later in April, the erg dual will give us a great indication of how we currently stack up against Gonzaga.”

For the novice, this will be their first erg dual against Gonzaga. Our novice were highly successful against Gonzaga’s novice, sweeping them in all three of the fall races. Freshman Chris Petershagen said “we are determined to continue our success, we have some new guys that are stepping up and it would be great to come away with another win.”

The Cougs are looking to replace their heavy 4

Cougar Crew is looking to replace a heavy four in their fleet and the team needs your help!

From Coach Arthur:

Dear Friends of Cougar Crew,
Most of our rowers were born in 1998 which helps put the age of our 1993 four called Against All Odds into perspective. We have an amazing fleet of boats but the need to upgrade this boat to a competitive heavyweight four is felt by the team. We are fortunate to have a $6700 donation towards this effort and hope that you consider supporting this effort.

Cougars Finish Their Last Strokes of the Fall Season

11/14/16

By Alex Ashton

This afternoon the Washington State Men’s Crew faced off against the Gonzaga Bulldogs on the Snake River. Conditions were calm waters with a light tailwind on the 5000 meter time trial course.

The Cougar’s First Varsity 8 (1V8) rowed hard to hold off Gonzaga throughout the race, but unfortunately Gonzaga was still able to pass them at the end. The V8 rowed their second fastest time of the season, coming in at a 16:40, 33 seconds behind their rivals.

The 2V8 held off Gonzaga for the first half of the race, but Gonzaga started walking through them during the second half. The 2V8 posted a 17:37, 62 seconds behind their competition. The WSU 3V8 finished with a time of 18:35.

The First Novice 8 (1N8) once again showed their dominance this season against Gonzaga by completing their fall racing sweep and came across the line with a time of 17:05, winning by 15 seconds.

The 2N8 was a lightweight lineup, raced the course in 18:32.. The 3N8 followed with a time of 19:33.

Head Coach Arthur is extremely impressed with his new recruits and how they have done this fall. He stated “It was rewarding to see all three boats have a solid race to end the fall season. This should provide motivation for the training so that we can capitalize on the spring sprint races. We have a strong A boat which has been able to defeat Gonzaga in all three fall races this year, and a solid group of novice lightweights."

Cougar Crew now heads indoors for winter training and to prepare for the spring racing season.

Defending the Snake

11/11/16

By Alex Ashton

This Sunday, November 13th, will be the last race of this fall season for Cougar Crew. The Washington State crews will look to throw down a great 5000 meter race on the Snake River against the visiting Gonzaga Bulldogs.

All racing will begin at 2:00pm, with boats crossing the starting line one after the other in the following order: 1st Varsity 8+, 2nd Varsity 8+, 3rd Varsity 8+, 1st Novice 8, 2nd Novice 8, 3rd Novice 8. Looking to improve on their showing last weekend at the Head of the Lake, all of the varsity lineups have changed from the Head of the Lake as Coach Alec Hurley looks to find the best top end speed and power.

The Novice will be entering three full eights at the race this weekend. The top novice eight have been impressive this fall and look to complete a sweep against Gonzaga’s top novice boat. Six seat Hayden Sundstrom (freshman, Criminal Justice major) stated “ We are ready to show that we can compete and win consistently against other top programs. To win on the Snake River would be great.” Coach Ericsson is also excited to field a lightweight lineup as the 2nd novice boat, commenting “They have showed consistent tenacity and their boat speed can be impressive.”

The finish line is in front of the Ken Abbey Shellhouse at Wawawai Landing.

Cougars Race Hard at the Head of the Lake

11/7/16

By Alex Ashton

Cougar Crew had five entries in Seattle at the 37th annual Head of the Lake regatta on Sunday. The men's team entered three boats in the event, the Varsity 8, Junior Varsity 8 and 3rd Varsity 8.

The Varsity Eight crew started off the event against a seven team field that included Washington and Gonzaga. The varsity finished with a time of 18:19.172, six tenths of a second ahead of Oregon. The Junior Varsity Eight took on another seven team field. The JV finished with a time of 18:21.017, finishing ahead of Oregon by three seconds. Both boats finished in sixth place.

With six entries in the 3rd Varsity Eight race the Cougars finished in fourth place with a time of 18:59.709, beating Gonzaga by 29 seconds. Coach Arthur stated “the race was a solid performance and offered important exposure to faster programs. We were fortunate to have Gonzaga in front of us for the first half and nipping at our heels on the second half to keep us from being complacent.”

The Cougars men's crew will host Gonzaga for the Head of the Snake this Sunday to cap off the fall racing season.

The club women sent out two boats for this weekends race. The women’s double went out first against a large and stacked field, they finished with a time of 30:15.150. The Varsity 8 was up next and raced in the Women’s Open Eight heat. Racing in rougher conditions than most of the rowers beforehand, the women were still able to have a solid race and finished with a time of 24:38.840.

Cougar Crew Takes on the Head of the Lake

11/4/16

By Alex Ashton

Cougar Crew heads over to Seattle to race at the Head of the Lake regatta this Sunday, November 6th. The 4800m headrace starts at Lake Union, goes through the legendary Montlake Cut, and finishes in Lake Washington. Cougar Crew men square off against top competition including Stanford, Washington, Oregon, Oregon State, and rival, Gonzaga. Commodore August Boyle stated “Our team thrives on these opportunities to face top collegiate programs and we look forward to showing that we can be competitive.”

The headrace is a time trial, racing against the clock, one boat after another chasing each other.

Racing will begin at 8:00am PT. with the men’s top varsity eight. They will look to improve on their time from their headrace at the Head of the Spokane with newly adjusted lineups. The junior varsity will be starting right behind the top varsity eight at 8:03am, followed by the Novice crew racing in the third varsity eight at 8:13am.

The novice look to build off of their strong win against the Gonzaga Bulldogs. Chris Petershagen, seven-seat of the first novice eight said “the guys are excited to compete against other program’s 3V boats. Some of them may have more experience, however we are confident in our ability to compete.”

This Sunday the club women will be bringing two boats to Head of the Lake. This is a varsity race where we will be representing WSU in a women’s 8+ and 2x. Both boats are facing fierce competition against the University of Washington and look forward to seeing how all of their training will pay off. This is an exciting race for all crews present due to the close proximity to onlookers in the Montlake Cut and the twists and turns of the course. Since the club women’s program started as a lightweight program the times of the race have only gotten faster and faster, so to see what an openweight boat can do at this head race will be a good precedent on where we are and how we have improved. Coach Dave Kempsell believes that "Head of the Lake gives our Varsity squad the first chance to test themselves against other club programs and a number of other schools from all over the West Coast. The double will see last year's ACRA Bronze Medal winning crew reunited, and the eight actually has two novice oarswomen who have really impressed early in their rowing careers. I know they're both excited at the opportunity to learn from racing with our more experienced rowers, and I'm sure the weekend will be a big help in setting our squad up to race well in the Spring." The women’s W2x event will start at 11:04am and the WV8+ will be at 11:45am.

The novice look to build off of their strong win against the Gonzaga Bulldogs. Chris Petershagen, seven-seat of the first novice eight said “the guys are excited to compete against other program’s 3V boats. Some of them may have more experience, however we are confident in our ability to compete.”

Cougar Crew will be rowing out of the Lake Washington Rowing Club on the north side of Lake Union.

Cougar Crew Races Ten 8’S In Season Opener

10/23/16

By Alex Ashton

Today Cougar Crew faced off against the Gonzaga Bulldogs. It was classic Spokane weather with cloudy skies however, the water was perfect for racing.

The 4500 meter racing started off with the men’s 1st Varsity 8 racing at 9:00am. The rowers followed Coach Alec Hurley’s race plan by starting off at a rate 36 for the first minute and settling at 32 until the sprint. Unfortunately, they were not able to make up the distance and finished behind Gonzaga with a time of 14:25. Next up was the men’s 2V8 who followed the same race plan as the 1V8 and showed the depth of Cougar Crew’s varsity, however they fell just short of Gonzaga by two seconds with a time of 14:59. The stroke of the 2V8 stated, “when you lose by that close of a margin, you can't help but over-analyze what you could have done better, but I am proud of my fellow teammates today.” Cougar Crew was also able to race a 3V8 who finished with a time of 15:53. Along with racing eights, 16 rowers also raced in the fours event as well. The Cougar’s showed great resilience and effort with the MV4 A boat beating Gonzaga’s MV4 A boat by 37 seconds with a time of 15:33.

WSU’s first year novice showcased what they have learned over these last two months at their very first race. The Novice 8 A boat was able to pass Gonzaga for a 17 second win. The Novice B boat was a lightweight lineup and represented their ranking well, 38 seconds behind Gonzaga. The Novice C and D boats raced an hour later and kept their times within a competitive margin. “It’s not often that four novice boats can all execute solid races on their first go,” commented Head Coach Arthur Ericsson. “Given their relative inexperience, I’m very happy that each race went as well as it did.”

The club women started the racing season off on a good foot, representing cougar crew with a varsity 8 and two novice 8s. Challenges were met in all races but that did not stop them from pulling hard for the entirety of the race. The varsity 8 went off at 10:15am against Gonzaga and the WSU varsity program. The course had quick conditions making the start line a mess to work with, coxswain Grace Montgomery did a great job keeping her crew focussed and ready for the race to start despite not having a working cox box for the race. Not being able to hear the coxswain did not slow the crew down and the 8 held it together and moved as one in order to have a strong finish to their first race. The varsity 8 boat finished with a time of 17:26. The novice 8 A boat experienced the same issue with not having a cox box but they stayed hard on the heels of the WSU varsity women’s novice A boat. The club novice A boat only finished 21 seconds behind the novice varsity program A boat with a time of 18:51. The novice 8 B boat went off at the same time as the varsity 8 at what was supposed to be 10:15am, but was pushed back due to continuously late start times throughout the regatta. Two women from the A boat hot seated into the B boat as a rower and coxswain. You could hear the coxswain Becca Stern motivating her crew and pushing them all the way through the finish buoys to have a solid sprint with an end time of 20:52. Rower Lily Orientalis summed up the race as, “A memory that will eternally be remembered is what I like to call this race. Everything was forgotten and excitement was all I felt. I was alive”. For the team's first 5k all boats pushed themselves through the line to have a solid finish.

Overall, our rowers with a joint effort, produced a total of 4,277,760 meters, crushing last year's Row-a-Thon meter total of 2,500,000. Returning oarsmen had a great time rowing and being able to connect more with the novice on the team. Senior and recruitment officer of the team Donovan Labriola said “ the atmosphere was really great and upbeat, everybody had a great attitude and it was awesome to row next to some of the novice and just talk to them.” For the novice this was their first heavy workload on the erg, however throughout the two days they showed the competitive mindset needed to succeed this season. Alex Welch, one of the new recruits said “it was great to get a glimpse at how important fundraising is to the team and how willing people are to donate the team, it was great to see everybody working extremely hard to reach our goal.” As of now 20,639 dollars has been donated to our team. The online donation will continue to go on for almost another month, any amount helps our team be the fastest it can be on the water, click here to donate. Thank you to all donors for your generous donations and congrats to our rowers for another successful Row-a-Thon.
