INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - Washington ended the 2013 campaign on a high note Sunday, earning a medal-winning finish in the grand final of the varsity four. The varsity eight finished 5th in their respective grand final and the second varsity eight was involved in a close finish for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place in their petite final, ultimately ending up in 4th place. Overall the Huskies accumulated 102 points to place 6th in the country against a very tough field at Eagle Creek Park in Indianapolis.

The competition was not easy on this championship Sunday, with Washington facing four of the top five teams in country, including No. 1 ranked Ohio State and defending national champion Virginia.

The Huskies varsity four had performed well the first two days of the championships, and were confident they could be in the mix at the top of the grand final. Washington jumped out to a fast start and was trailing only USC in the first 500 meters. The Buckeyes then made a push through the second 500 meters to overtake Washington and eventually USC to cross the finish line first and earn the victory. The Huskies four stayed strong through the finish and held off Virginia by less than one hundreths of a second with a time of 7:12.03.

The varsity eight had a difficult challenge in front of them. Facing the fastest crews in the country, the Huskies held their own through the middle but couldn't muster the strength of the other crews at the end, ending in 5th place with a time of 6:25.69. California, whom the Huskies had beaten twice this season, had their best race of the year to take the varsity eight title. Princeton, Ohio State, and Virginia were separated by a second and finished second, third, and fourth, respectively. Washington out paced the Trojans of USC, who won the varsity eight race two weeks ago at the Pac-12 Championships.

Washington's second varsity eight raced in the petite final on Sunday after placing sixth in their semifinal on Saturday. The front four boats stayed even throughout most of the 2,000 meter race making for a close finish at the line. A second and a half was the difference between the first and fourth place finisher, with the Huskies pulling out a third place finish behind Virginia (6:32.13) and Stanford (6:33.56) and just barely missing out second place with a time of 6:33.58.

Unlike the men's championships, the NCAA National Champion is determined by total team points accumulation rather than the varsity eight race. Big Ten champs and number one ranked Ohio State Buckeyes put together an impressive weekend, tallying 126 points to claim the 2013 National Title. California missed out on the title by two points, followed by Priceton, USC, Virginia and Washington.

The Huskies improved on their 2012 finish by one spot and with a lot of young talented and now more experienced rowers coming back next year, the future is looking bright for the Washington women.
