Cascade Cup

Published by under Uncategorized

The Vikings were down in Vancouver this past weekend working to reclaim the conference title after surrendering it to the UPS Loggers in 2014. It was a successful day for the Vikings, with wins in all events and a podium finish for the exhibition 8 as well. The Vikings effectively reestablished themselves on top of the conference once again with the first across the board set of wins since the establishment of the Northwest Collegiate Rowing Conference.

Husky Open

Published by under Uncategorized

April 4th WWU Men’s crew traveled down to Seattle to compete in the Husky Open. The team fielded three eights and two fours to race 2000m through the cut against UCSB, UW, UPS, and SU. Although the Viks were unable to catch UCSB and UW through the sprint, the V8 finished 5 seconds back on UCSB V8 and well ahead of conference rivals UPS and SU. The V4 had a heart breaker of a race with a 2 second loss, seeing them pull across the line on the stern deck of UCSB’s V4.
