Men's and women's varsity eights will compete.

What's Happening: Washington hosts the University of Wisconsin in an annual home-and-home dual regatta, Saturday, April 15 on the Montlake Cut. The dual series, begun in 1993, features only men's and women's varsity eight-oared shells. The women's varsity race begins at 10 a.m. followed by the men's race at 10:20 a.m. The regatta should be a high powered dual, as all four crews (m/w) are ranked in the top 10 of the current USRowing Coaches' Poll, released April 12 (see below). The crews have already met once this season, in the grand finals at the San Diego Crew Classic, April 2. In the women's Whittier Cup final, Washington posted a time of 6:38.4 to collect its ninth straight title while the Badgers finished sixth at 6:59.7. In the men's Copley Cup final, the Huskies were second, behind California, in a time of 5:48.5, while Wisconsin was fourth at 5:57.1.

UW Husky vs. UW Badger History: The battle for the "W" trophy began in 1993 and Washington has won all seven men's and women's varsity races during that span. The series is a home-and-home challenge, contested on Lake Washington in Seattle and on Lake Mendota in Madison.
