SEATTLE - The members of the men's crew varsity 8+ have been named the Gohuskies.com Student-Athlete's of the Week for the week of April 18-24. This is the second such honor for the men's crew team on the year.
The varsity 8+ boat members are: Cox - Samuel Ojserkis, stroke - Nenad Bulicic, 7 - Alex Bunkers, 6 - Hans Struzyna, 5 - Ambrose Puttmann, 4 - Conlin McCabe, 3 - Robert Munn, 2 - Mathis Jessen, bow - Anthony Jacob.
For the fifth straight year, the Schoch Cup remains in Seattle after the Husky men's varsity eight rowed away from the No. 2 Golden Bears by nearly three seconds, 5:34.95 to 5:37.61 on their 2,000-meter course.The Huskies never trailed their archrivals, pulling away from Cal around the 1,000-meter mark.
Washington improved to 70-29-1 in varsity eight races in the Cal Dual.
Overall, the Huskies took 3 of 4 men's races from the Golden Bears on their home course. The one slipup came with the freshmen 8, where a strong Cal boat was able to pull away from the Huskies right at the start, winning by more than a length at 5:42.87 to 5:48.21. Outside of a move that chewed back a few seats at the 500, the Grunties could not catch up to their rivals.
The varsity four began the morning with a strong row, shrugging off a fast Cal start to overwhelm the Golden Bears. Taking advantage of the pace set by stroke Ryan Schroeder, the Huskies were soon able to muscle back control of the race and won going away, 6:22.77 to 6:37.56.
Washington also dictated control in the second varsity eight. The Huskies showcased the depth and speed in their program with a powerful row through the Montlake Cut, winning with a time of 5:37.87, compared to the 5:47.63 margin for Cal.
Other nominees include: Austin Voth (baseball), Marton Bots (men's tennis), Joe Zimmerman (men's track & field), Shaniae Lakes (women's track & field), Kelsey Jackson (women's crew), Sadena Parks (women's golf) and Jenn Salling (softball).
