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).
