Pac-10 History: The Husky women, two-time NCAA champions, are set to defend conference titles in the varsity, junior varsity and novice eight races. Washington varsity crews have won seven straight Pac-10 crowns, the novice eights four straight and the jayvees the last two conference titles. The varsity four will aim for its first title since 1995.
On the men's side, the varsity four will defend its crown while the frosh, jayvee and varsity boats look to reclaim conference titles after finishing second to California in 1998. Prior to last season, the varsity had won eight in a row and the junior varsity, six in a row. The freshmen men's most recent title came in 1997.
