Head of the Lake

Published by under Uncategorized

The Viking’s had a good showing at the Head of the Lake regatta at the historic UW course, fielding a Varsity 8, the JV 8 split into 4+’s for the Varsity 4 event, and a novice entry in the 3V8. The Western V8 put out a competitive performance for it’s first time in the 8, finishing 5th, 9 seconds off Gonzaga and 6 behind WaSU. The 4+’s played off each other, with both pushing far past U of Oregon and Seattle U conference rivals. The novice 8 had a finish that would constitute a fall season best. The Viking’s walked away with times promising a competitive and aggressive continuation to fall and a robust spring sprint season.

The Varsity 8 launches from Conibear Shellhouse on Lake Washington for the Head of the Lake. From bow, Chris Swanson ('16), Jackson Wood ('17), Brayden Jacobson ('16), Severn Anderson ('17), Carl Smith ('15), Drew Falabella ('17), Nick Jensen ('18), Henry Brown ('16) and coxswain Charlotte Nieman ('18).

Head of the Charles Regatta

Published by under Uncategorized

The V4 made history by being the first WWU boat to compete in the HOCR  in Boston Oct 18-19. The boat consisting of, from bow Brayden Jacobson, Severn Anderson, Carl Smith, Henry Brown, and coxswain Marielle Face, put up a competitive time of 17.19.71 and placed 15th of the 44 boats in the division. This placing is exciting as HOCR is the largest head race in the nation, and it guarantees a spot in next years regatta making a return trip next year possible.

Fall Updates

Published by under Uncategorized

The Vikings look on towards the start of a promising Fall season. With three full 8s of returning and experienced rowers, the Men’s crew has been pulling their way towards readiness for the American Lake Fall Classic on October 12th. Finalization of the Head of the Charles 4+ has allowed for more intense focus and competition between the V4+, JV4+ and the 2V8 and 3V8 during practice this week as the team looks to put meters under the boats to get into racing form.

The novice squad is now at a steady ~30 rowers who have shown that they have the mental constitution and physical ability to take on the rigors of the sport. This Saturday will mark the first full on-the-water practice for most, a capstone to a week of technique work and increasingly difficult dry land workouts.
