RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif. - The quest for a Pac-10 Championship has begun as the Huskies descended on Northern California on Saturday morning.
An early morning wake-up call greeted the team on campus, as men's and women's rowers filled up two charter busses and sped off for Sea-Tac Airport. Once in Sacramento, the team made its way to Lake Natoma to unload the trailer and practice race strategy on the course, such as starts. Mostly, the team wanted to get a feel for the conditions that will face them on Sunday. And unlike the 105-degree temperatures that welcomed the Huskies last year, this year's edition should be played out under relatively mild weather in the 80s. Even with the cooler temperatures, the training staff made it a priority to keep the rowers out of the sun and in the shade.
After practice, teams met again in groups with their coaches to review the afternoon row.
