COUGAR CREW

UW/SU DUALS

SU POST-RACE UPDATE

The Cougs finished up a great first spring racing weekend. It was rewarding to not only race UW but also SU. This experience gave all our crews a great baseline for the rest of the season and we expect big things to come. During the SU dual both of our varsity fours pulled ahead of the SU four which was very encouraging to see. On the novice eight side of things, we saw both of our eights pull ahead of SU as well. Race results are posted below.

Evan Thornton- Freshman

The race was really good. We just wanted to set a good benchmark for the year and we really did that today. The flat water helped and while we were going we felt good, we felt together, and we felt as one. We did what we wanted to do and even better so, we are excited to make it even better. 

PRE-RACE UPDATE

 After a long frigid winter of building fitness, the Cougs are ready to showcase their hard work on the water this weekend in Seattle. The varsity and novice men are excited for back-to-back race days, going against UW on Saturday and SU on Sunday. This is the novice's first overnight regatta so nerves are high, but the Cougs are ready to get some great racing to start off their spring season.
