Washington head coach Bob Ernst
"Everyone did a great job today. The varsity qualified for the final after a real barn burner of a race. It was a five boat race all the way down the course. To put it mildly, we didn't have the favored lane, out in lane two. But we got the job done and tomorrow is payday. All our boats qualified and it's off to the races. We're going to have a lot of fun."
