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.
