SEATTLE - Washington's top-ranked men's and women's rowers swept seven races in an annual dual regatta with Washington State on the 2,000-meter Montlake Cut course Saturday.

The women's second novice eight crew opened the racing day, winning easily over Washington State in a time of 7 minutes, 25.1 seconds. Races included two women's novice heats, mens freshmen/novice, men's and women's junior varsity and varsity as well as a women's varsity four heat.

The Huskies won each race easily, with the varsity women's crew posting a time of 6:59.2 over WSUs 7:21.0. The crew, coming off its seventh straight Whittier Cup victory at the San Diego Crew Classic last weekend, is made up of cox - Missy Collins (Bothell, Wash.), stroke - Sabina Telenska (Prague, Czech Republic), 7 - Denni Nesler (Pleasantville, N.J.), 6 - Kelly Horton (Seattle, Wash.), 5 - Katy Dunnet (W. Vancouver, B.C.), 4 - Tiffani Sumner (Portland, Ore.), 3 - Jan Williamson (Edmonds, Wash.), 2 - Vanessa Tavalero (Sacramento, Calif.), bow - Kari Green (Bellevue, Wash.).

The men's varsity crew of cox - Adrian Dahood (Princeton, N.J.), stroke - Kevin Dolan (Bainbridge, Wash.), 7 - Erik Brand (Bainbridge, Wash.), 6 - Brent Starace (Woodinville, Wash.), 5 - DanShapiro (Madison, Wis.), 4 - Kurt Vigeland (Vancouver, Wash.), 3 - George Dowell (Alexandria, Vir.), 2 - Josh Reade (Park City, Utah), bow - Pat Ormond (Lake Forest Park, Wash.) posted a winning time of 6:14 over its second team in 6:25 and WSU at 6:35.

"I was happy with all our crews," said UW women's coach Jan Harville. "The varsity faced a big challenge in the rough water. By the time they raced, there was a severe cross headwind and they had some steering problems. The boats were getting pushed to the outside of the course.

"Our crews handled the rough water well," she continued. "We attacked well in the water. We practice being tough and focused and concentrating on the task. That helped us today."

Washington continues its homestand with the mens and womens varsity crews hosting Wisconsin, Sat., April 18 on the Montlake Cut. Racing begins at 10 a.m. The Badger men were ranked seventh in the US Rowing Preseason Coaches Poll. The Wisconsin women were not ranked in the top 10 but received votes. Washingtons men and women both received the top ranking in the first-year poll.
