Men's Crew Takes On Mt. Si - Washington Huskies

Men's Crew Takes On Mt. Si

| No Comments

Under the cover of darkness, the men's crew team at Washington made a Veteran's Day trip to Mt. Si for a training exercise. This fitness test involved a time run up the 4-mile trail, which is a popular hiking destination for Seattle-area residents. It's also steep, full of switchbacks and a mental test for those who choose just to walk up the route.

Imagine what a sprint feels like?

And of course, the competition was intense.

But the taxing activity was also a way for the men's crew team to honor the veterans who have served in wars all over the world, and some of whom paid the ultimate sacrifice. The men's crew program has a storied history of sending rowers into the armed forces, and currently there are two student-athletes (Reiner Hershaw and Robert Squires) who spent the summer training with the Marines and Navy respectively.
