Four Husky seniors were chosen for the Pac-12 All Conference Rowing team while sophomore Alex Perkins was honored as the Pac-12 Newcomer of the Year and head coach Michael Callahan received the Coach of the Year award for the fourth straight year.
The top ranked Huskies sweep all five grand finals to win their 3rd straight and 16th overall National Championship on Sunday at Lake Natoma.
Washington will send four boats to race against Oregon State as part of the Covered Bridge Regatta on Dexter Lake. A few select men's boats will also be heading to the Pullman to face Washington State's men's club program on the Snake River.
The Washington men and women officially open up the 2013 slate with the Class Day Regatta on Saturday on the Montlake Cut. Races start at 10:00 A.M.
