Seattle - The U.S. Women's National Team and the Washington men's varsity eight won the premier races at the 20th annual Head of the Lake Regatta on a cool and clear day through the Montlake Cut Saturday morning.

The women's national team, minus three of its members it competed with this summer, covered the 2.8 mile course in a time of 16 minutes, 54:33 seconds. Washington coxswain Mary Whipple, Heidi Hurn and Anna Mickelson, who were a part of the national team crew that finished fourth at the 2001 World Championships in August, helped lead the Husky varsity eight to a second place showing with an elapsed time of 17:06.39. Pac-10 competitor Stanford was third at 17:10.89, followed by Penn (17:29.99), Oregon State (17:32.68) and Texas (17:45.69) in the 11-boat field.

The Husky men's varsity eight posted a convincing victory in its race, finishing in 15:16.00, well ahead of second place Stanford at 15:46.23. Oregon State was third at 15:55.66, followed by Gonzaga (16:04.87) and University of Victoria (16:28.18).

Husky junior varsity crews also won, with the men taking the top two spots in their field, at 15:32.56 and 16:05.52, respectively. The JV women covered the course in 17:36.93, ahead of rival Washington State at 18:03.16.

The 2.8 mile course started at the north end of Lake Union, continuing through Portage Bay and the Montlake Cut into Union Bay. A wide 180? turn points boats toward the finish line near Washington's Conibear Shellhouse.

Head of the Lake closes Washington's Fall racing season. The Huskies begin winter training next week in preparation for the upcoming Spring racing season. The 2001 season tips off with the annual Class Day Regatta March 30. Washington's first competition will be at the San Diego Crew Classic, April 6-7.
